The day was looking cool and overcast for a summer's day.
I drove to Strickland State Forest down Strickland Forest Road an parked at the Banksia Picnic area. There were picnic and wood bbqs and compost toilet.
I took the track towars Stricland Falls. The track was easy to follow . It wound its way on a sandy track through overgrown vegetation and pass rocks and cliff faces. Eventually, a sign was reached and the falls were only a short distance more to walk.
The falls were small and fell only a short distance. Still, it was very quiet and peaceful. A nice spot to rest awhile and take in the scenery. The rocks around the waterfall were very slippery. I had one big slide when scramb;ing back from the falls.
I then followed the Cabbage Tree Trail which was easy walking with a steady upward incline about ten minutes after passing the turnoff for the Stoney Creek Trail. The trail ended at the Banksia picnic area.
There was also a lookout over a part of Gosford near the picnic area.
Note: the Cabbage Tree trail would be good for mountain biking.
