A steady uphill climb, first along a sheltered gully and then through open forest, is rewarded by great views from the historic Mt Nelson Signal Station.
The first half of the track follows Cartwright Creek. After leaving the creek the track passes through drier forest where orchids, common heath, flag iris and other wildflowers bloom in Spring. Just before the summit is the Truganini Memorial, dedicated to Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their descendants. From the historic Signal Station there are expansive views across Storm Bay to the Tasman Peninsula and beyond.
