The walk terminates at one of the geological sites with exposed cliffs and earth faults caused by the massive 1929 earthquake. The mudstone cliffs illustrate the sheer force needed to wrench the earth apart. Initially the track follows a picturesque Johnson Creek with the characteristic tea stained water, fording the creek the track climbs uneven rocky terrain. You return on the same route. In parts the track is poorly defined with roots and vegetation making the ground slippy in wet weather. Tramping boots are necessary for this walk, it is muddy and you will be fording streams. In winter the water levels need to be assessed for safety.
