This lightly trafficked walk starts from the Cedar Block day-use area at the end of National Park Road in Ravensbourne.

This short, easy walk begins in the rainforest from the rear of the day-use area.

Interpretive signage throughout the walk describes how the area was used by Aboriginal travellers and the timber industry.

The walk is suitable for families with children or those with minimal time in the area.

The day-use area has drop toilets, wood BBQs and both covered and open picnic tables. There is no camping or rubbish bins at the day-use area.

Track: Graded and well-signed, the track is easy to follow, with only a small amount of elevation change.

Difficulty: The track is suitable for all fitness levels.
