An easy run through ancient temperate rainforest.

Overview

Step into a world of lush tree ferns, ancient myrtle beech trees, and massive eucalyptus on this short track. Here, deep in the heart of the Otways, steep slopes, rich volcanic soils, and high rainfall combine to produce this epic scenery; this loop takes you through it all.

Need to Know

There is no bathroom at the car park.

Runner Notes

This would not be a good run... too short and too popular.

Description

From the parking area just off of the B100, the loop dives into the dense forest. Follow the signs ushering you clockwise on the loop and immediately you'll be immersed in the thick of it.

The path takes you through absolutely immense flora reminiscent of the United State's Pacific Northwest. It should take most parties approximately 30 minutes and is generally on an easy, graded track.

Flora & Fauna

Otway black snail, a species of carnivorous (yes, you read that right) land-snail.

History & Background

Set aside by the Forest Commission in the early 1900s, this area is named for the district's first forester - a man named Maitland Bryant. Around the time of the 1st World War, Maitland would rest his horses at this point whilst conducting patrols between Apollo Bay and Horden Vale.
