“A challenging backcountry track starting from the Sugarloaf Pass Track and heading east toward the Dart River basin.”— Kristen McGlynn
Toward the end of the track, you'll notice that the sound of rushing water becomes much more noticeable. You are now approaching the incredible Rockburn Chasm where the waters of Rock Burn have sculpted an amazing crevasse into the gray granite. You can look down this narrow crack to see the clear blue waters of the Rock Burn cascading below.
Follow the trail downriver to connect to the Lake Sylvan to Rockburn Shelter Track, and the chasm will widen to beautiful blue pools until the stream's outlet widens into a wide, rocky shore where it joins the alluvial plains of the braided Dart River. The views here are outstanding and there is a small shelter and pit toilet operated the local Dart River tours that bring kayakers and jet boats to this area.
