The Back Wall and Dicksons Falls Mt Buffalo,
15 km, 5 hours (approx)

The Back Wall of Mt Buffalo National Park heads off from the same point as the Dicksons Falls walk with the paths diverting after 500 metres.

The main walk can roughly be divided into three sections. First the pretty Cresta plain with interesting rock formation leading to the Devils Marbles Next you enter a treed area with a dense sub alpine growth where gaiters are recommended. The final third opens up to the smooth boulders with numerous cairns to guide the way, This area will be difficult if the weather closes in. The view is most rewarding over the Buffalo River valley and on to the main divide in all directions.

On return to the main path we take an easy side trip to Dickson’s Falls and nature walk, this time with a different view back to Mount Feathertop.
