It climbs from the foothills of Fish Creek to the peak of Mount Hoddle and then down a steep descent through dense forest with magnificent views of Wilsons Promontory on its approach to Foster. The trail then flattens out, passing through Toora and Welshpool, finally reaching the coast at Port Welshpool.
