Gudu Bush hike

Route: Gudu Bush, Lookout Rock and Cascades (Circular route)
Distance: 6.1 km
Duration: 4 hours (day hike)

A 6.1km circular hike heading uphill to start and then through Gudu Bush where a small stream and pool will can be seen. An option is to turn right up the hill here which takes you to the top of Gudu Falls (this is a steep path about 700m long and 230m in elevation), else continue straight and when you exit the forest stunning views await you.

You then head left on exiting Gudu Bush and walk down the hill towards Lookout Rock and then onto the Cascades.
