Donaghys Lookout Track

Donaghys Lookout Track

The Trail

This 2km return walk is a fantastic short hike combining lovely rainforests settings with breath taking views.

After a gentle climb from the carpark the trail leads through dense temperate rainforest before opening up on to a heathland ridge.  From the lookout platform at the peak of the ridge impressive views overlook the junction of the Collingwood and Franklin Rivers as well as amazing sweeping views mountain views  including the towering Frenchmans Cap.

Although slightly longer than the other the Lyell Highway walks (Nelson Falls & Franklin River Trail) it offers some most incredible views found in this region, making it an extremely rewarding hike.
