This old school hand-built trail drops steeply off Acheron Ridge straight to the car park, avoiding Spider Gully. It is skinny, steep, and off camber with exposed roots.

Access Info

From Melbourne, follow the Maroondah Highway to Buxton. Turn left onto Dyes Lane and follow the road for approximately 1 km. Cross the Acheron River and turn right to reach the trailhead and day visitor area. All trails are closed during the wetter months each year from the Tuesday after Queens Birthday weekend in June and re-open at the beginning of the September / October school holidays. This is to protect the track surface from erosion.
