The Tanglefoot Loop Track is a 6 mi looped trail that starts and ends at the Tanglefoot Car Park, Toolangi, Victoria.
This trail crosses over the southern part of the longer Tanglefoot Track Walk; not to be confused, this shorter route does not take in the summit itself, but those wanting to bag the peak can by taking a right turn at the northern point of the trail before returning to the loop.
This popular shorter trail is graded as a Medium difficulty forest path and usually takes around 3 – 4 hours to complete with a total elevation gain of 1237 ft. (For information on how we grade trails, please click here, and caution is advised on trail times as this depends on multiple variables. For more info, click here.)
The undulating track leads bushwalkers through the spectacular temperate rainforest of the Toolangi State Forest. Beautiful and lush with ferns and eucalyptus trees, it’s best walked between April and September as it can become very muddy during the wet season so trousers or gaiters are recommended to fend off leaches.
Terrain is rugged and uneven, with sections of overgrown track; this trail lives up to its name of ‘Tanglefoot’ but is well worth the effort for the sound of the birds, smell of the rainforest and the fun of wild bushwalking.
Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on a leash for the protection of the reserve and its wildlife.
