From Collinsvale: take Collins Cap Road, after the bridge turn left onto Springdale Road and continue down to Myrtle Forest Road. The trail and car parking is at the end of Myrtle Forest Road.
Gentle uphill walk through a ferny-covered forest to a creek-side picnic area and shelter, and further on the beautiful Myrtle Creek waterfall.
Can you spot some gigantic trees and teeny birds? The trail weaves through some stands of mountain ash, a species known to grow into the tallest flowering plants in the world. Keep an ear out for chittering from the canopy, you may just spot some black-headed honeyeaters bouncing upside-down looking for insects.
This trail has potential to connect through to Collin's Cap and Bonnet, or further afield to the summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington.
