Trail: Harolds Cross Waterfall Loop (Gentle 4km, 90min, 90m ascent)
There are few natural paths from Australia's South East Coast into the interior. Yuin and Wiradjiri traces were eagerly adopted by early colonials and many remain in present day use. Others, have quietly slipped from memory.
Colonials renamed many of the paths as "Crosses". A major pass through the center of the Tallaganda still bears the name "Harolds Cross" from that time. The name has been applied to a waterfall creek that falls from Mount Cronin though a deep rainforest gorge.
This path passes many small waterfalls - many hidden in the unburnt fern tree forest that covers the creeks. As in most mountainous regions, paths have been cut to cross creeks at the top of drops, and it is at the intersection of road and creeks that you will come closest to the small falls in this area.
Above some of the intersections are small ponds established to support forestry and fire suppression activities.
Gentle 4km, 90min, 90m ascent.
Gentle grades along formed trail although side trips to creek and trees across track will require some scrambling:
