This is a rugged 14km (7-hour) return walk that provides access to the waterfalls and rock pools within Flaggy Creek George. Panoramic views over the Murray River are available from Valley View after 1.5km.

Section 1: Kurrajongs to Valley View (1.5km) – is a continuous climb through granite boulders. This section is a demanding climb with very few flat areas. On reaching Valley View there are views in both directions along the Murray River. Caution is required on this section as there are unguarded cliff edges.

Section 2: Valley View to the Oaks (3.5km) – follows the ridge line for one kilometre before descending into saddle. The walk then resumes uphill for over a kilometre up to The Oaks (named for the drooping She-oaks found in the area).

Section 3: The Oaks to Flaggy Creek Gorge (2km) – heads downhill towards the Gorge. The track follows the gorge top down to the water where a number of small pools and waterfalls can be found.
