Beech Forest Day Trip
Beech Forest is a region located just an under an hour from the Forrest township.
We suggest a day trip which combines a visit to Beauchamp Falls in the morning, a picnic at the Californian Redwoods, followed by Hopetoun Falls in the afternoon. Triplet Falls and Little Aire Falls are also nearby but keep in mind how much walking you can handle in steep terrain.
Each waterfall would take approximately 1 hour return for a person of good fitness. The Californian Redwoods does have an informal trail that follows the creek but is also just a beautiful place to sit and eat.
The benefit to leaving Hopetoun Falls till last is that if you are tired, you can still actually view the falls from above from just near the carpark. However, if you've still got energy, you can walk down to the base for the best view - it does require walking down and up 200 steps though!
The following map will take you from Forrest Guesthouse to Beauchamp, then the Redwoods, then Hopetoun and back again. If you click on "More Options" on the map below it will open in Google maps and you can send the directions to your phone.
