Erskine Falls Extended Loop
21 km

7 h to 11 h

This walk starts near the Allenvale Road Carpark, at the end of Allenvale Road, Lorne, looping along the Otway Ranges following the Erskine River. Embark on a hike that takes you past Phantom Falls, the Cora Lynn Cascades, Lemonade Creek, Erskine Falls, Straw Falls, Splitter Falls and the Erskine River Rapids. Navigate through lush green foliage and mossy forest, with the gentle sound of the running stream throughout the hike. The walk is long and challenging, but at each waterfall, you are rewarded with spectacular views of water cascading over cliff faces. The trail is quite muddy and damp in some places. There are many river crossings across really slippery rocks, but with the help of hiking poles and some cautious stepping, you can make it through without wet shoes. This walk should not be attempted when the water levels are high. Dogs are allowed on a small portion of this trail, but most of the loop is in Great Otway National Park, which generally does not allow dogs. There is a campsite en route, and this hike can be completed with an overnight stop. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
