About Trestle Falls

Trestle falls was only officially named in 2020 and is located on Trestle creek which lies within Wellington Park and flows into Mountain River. It is a multi-tier waterfall with the top tier being the highest.

About the walk:

The walk begins on the Mountain River fire trail which is well signposted and starts from the end of Mountain River road which you get to be turning of the Huon highway at Grove. There is ample parking just past the bridge over Mountain river but please do not obstruct driveways. The fire trail goes up steeply but levels off after 30 minutes and starts making its way downhill. You will have passed the stumps of some enormous logged trees. At this stage you will need to decide the best route towards your left down to the creek. The walking through the forest is not hard but you will have to make your way around some huge logs. No 'bushbashing' required but this walk is only suitable for suitably prepared walkers used to off-track walking.
