Bruthen - Walking Trails



The Bruthen walking trails meander through State forest, highlighting local historic features. The trailhead is signposted off the Great Alpine Road, approximately 2km north of Bruthen.

The walks are colour codes and well sign posted. A map of the trails may be available from the Lakes Entrance Tourist Information Centre.

Easy Magic Walk - Return 0.6km, 10-25mins, flat well formed track which is clearly signposted, has no steps and no bushwalking experience is required.

This short walk is a formed gravel path with rest stops and interpretive signs along the way. There are opportunities along the way to appreciate the forest setting and wildflowers particularly in spring.

McLeans Loop - Return 1.6km, 20-35mins, short steep hills, formed track, some obstacles, clearly signposted, no steps and no bushwalking experience required.

This walk loops off Easy Magic Walk and follows the service track behind residential properties then turns left before Engineers Road through the forest to return to the Easy Magic Walk.

Explosive Magazine Loop - Return 2.5km, 45 mins, short steep hills, formed track, some obstacles, clearly signposted, no steps and some bushwalking experience recommended.

Also looping off Easy Magic Walk, the track passes through undulating forest and crosses gullies and forest roads. The walk passes a small concrete hut which was for storing explosives for road building. The walk heads back through the forest towards the Easy Magic Walk.

Berry Farm Loop - Return 3.2km, 1 hour, short steep hills, formed track, some obstacles, clearly signposted, no steps and some bushwalking experience recommended.

This walk loops off Explosive Magazine Loop and heads North for 1 km before reaching Engineers Road. It then passes adjacent to agricultural land, including a berry farm and heads South back to join the McLeans Loop.

Plane Crash Loop - Return 5.3km, 1 3/4 hour, short steep hills, formed track, some obstacles, clearly signposted, no steps and some bushwalking experience recommended.

This walk extends off Explosive Magazine Loop and climbs to a ridge before dropping into a ferny gully and passes by the site of a former plane crash and includes a creek crossing. It provides a lovely extended walk through the forest.
