The Savage River walk

Where the Huon Pine Walk ends the Savage River Walk begins.

The track is narrow, winding, steep in sections but generally always going up except for the comparatively short downhill section to the Savage River. Sometimes it crawls with tree roots, and sometimes with constructed steps intended to make the climbs easier.  But note: whoever built the steps added the flat section above the riser and not behind so the depth of the steps is far greater than for normal steps and this makes climbing the various set of stairs that much more challenging.  That is the downside of the walk.  The upsides of this walk are many. I discovered the beauty of the trees, the fungi, the texture of the undergrowth, the air, the colours, and the experience of being away from our commercial and social worlds was continuously refreshing.
