About Horeb Falls

The super impressive Horeb Falls is a large multi-tiered waterfalls situated near Cathedral Mountain between the Walls of Jerusalem National Park & Cradle Mountain National Park. There is no track to reach Horeb Falls and any hike to Horeb Falls and Moses Creek will require the use of a GPS and / or maps and compass.

About the hike

The hike commences from the very end of Mersey Forest Road along a muddy track. Though the track is marked, bushfires has left the track hard to distinguish in places. However, after about 20 minutes of hiking you will reach a foot suspension bridge that crosses Jacksons Creek.  On the other side of the bridge is foot cleaning stations that should be used before hiking further.  From there, there is a track that can be followed that leads you between two hills. The track is difficult to follow, and once again, a reliance on a GPS is more or less required to take you within the correct area. You will be required to cross an unnamed creek, and once on the other side, you will be required to walk off track north-westerly in the general direction of Horeb Falls and Moses Creek. The hike is ambitious and at times you will be required to navigate your way around steep rock sections, fallen trees, and thick bush.

There are ribbons tied to trees near Moses Creek. Following the ribbons will take up steeply uphill along side Moses Creek where many smaller and pretty cascades can be viewed.

Eventually you will reach the bottom tiers of Horeb Falls, a delightful spot encased within sensational forest. if you continue uphill you will reach the upper tiers of Horeb Falls.

Hiking Options

Upon reaching Horeb Falls it is possible to continue hiking to Meribah Falls and Grail Fails as a circuit hike. The hike from Horeb Falls to Grail Falls is off track with thick forest to negotiate and steep climbing. The hike will take give you expansive views of Chapter Lake, but is very difficult and tiring. To complete the loop circuit, you will need to have very good fitness, and a GPS or navigation equipment. Allow yourself a minimum of 8.5 hours to visit all 3 waterfalls.
