A strenuous walk that rewards with expansive views from Doyles Lookout on the Clifftop Track. The walk starts near the water tank behind the toilets. Follow the Von Bibra Trail (which shares the first 20m section with the Friends Track). After taking the left fork, the trail starts to climb steeply on a rocky and rutted surface until it levels off near the top, where it meets with the Clifftop Track on the left (unsigned). Follow the Clifftop Track above exposed cliffs to an unfenced viewing area, which makes a good spot to sit on the rocks and take in the views. Look out for the rare Risdon Peppermint (Eucalyptus risdonii), which only grows in the Meehan Range. Retrace your steps back to the Von Bibra Trail intersection and turn left for 70m until you reach the Meehan Skyline Trail. Turn right and follow the Meehan Skyline Trail downhill until you come to a sign posted track intersection and take the fire trail downhill (avoid the Corkscrew Mountain Bike Track). The first section of fire trail is steep and rocky but it levels out as you go further down the hill. At the bottom the trail crosses a mountain bike track and eventually comes out near an old stone railway abutment, formerly part of the Bellerive to Sorell railway line. Go past the stone abutment, turn right and follow the fire trail back to the carpark.
