I have called this blog Cherry Falls, but this is actually a “work in progress”, as I have found three lovely Cascades on the Humphreys Rivulet (as well as Bear Falls higher up), but I didn’t go far enough to reach Cherry Falls. So, I will show you the three Cascades I got this time, as I rather like them, and once I have been back and reached the actual Cherry Falls, I will update the blog.
I parked the car at Tolosa Mountain Bike Track parking area, and followed the trail now called Tolosa Fire Trail for a while (that’s what the signs say. My map calls it Native Cherry Fire Trail). After that, you go down to the Rivulet, and bushbash your way up it. There are some lovely sections, but there are also some rather horrid stretches, crammed with cutting grass, so it required some perseverance.
I had started later than intended, and was, as usual, worried about being on time to pick up little Abby after pre-school, so needed to be out by 2pm to ensure no mishaps there. I had enjoyed being beside the creek and unhurriedly photographing, so stopped at the highest of the cascades on this occasion. I will take in the Falls themselves next time. The excursion is a nice blend of brisk track walking and concerted bushbashing.
