Climb: 199m
Descent: 224m

Hard track
A lovely walk on one of the shorter and easier sections of the Overland Track. You walk through open alpine country with many tarns and there is an optional side trip to Lake Will. There is a small beach at Lake Will and another opportunity for a swim at Lake Windermere - both are very cold, but refreshing if you are keen. Let us begin by acknowledging the Palawa people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present. 
From the new Waterfall Valley Hut, head past the front of the new hut initially towards the Old Waterfall Valley Hut to then veer left to head down and across the plain and along the main Overland Track.
