Getting There

Park at the end of Estuary Drive which runs off Brightwater Road and commence the walk or ride from this end due to there being very limited parking at the Mt Louis Rd end. Horse float parking is limited and best to park horse floats at the Peter Murrell Reserve carpark at Huntingfield, and ride through Peter Murrell Reserve to access. Due to the track going through a right of way on private reserves, users must stay on track at all times. Can combine with Peter Murrell Reserve Tracks for a longer walk or ride.

Follow the ridgeline to climb through open bushland and enjoy spectacular views across Storm Bay and North West Bay. You can now continue the track through private reserve to Mt Louis Rd or return the same way. The whole of Tinderbox Peninsula contains important white gum forest – critical habitat for the threatened forty-spotted pardalote. Dogs are prohibited from July to March due to Wedge-tailed Eagle nesting season. Dogs are restricted to on lead and formed tracks only from April to June. Gravel road with several steep sections and many loose stones on the track. This track provides a 4.5 km walk one way from Estuary Drive to Mt Louis Rd.
