Oatley Mountain Trail
at Holywell

The Oatley Mountain trailhead is located near the ranger station at Holywell Recreational Park.

Oatley Mountain is the forest behind the ranger station where this loop trail goes through the tunnel-like jungle of the small mountain. Platforms and towers offer many good views of St. Andrew and Portland from three look out points.

The Oatley Mountain Trail descends through primary forest, rich in ferns and mosses, with over 50 species of trees and shrubs.You can continue on the Waterfall Trail (1.5 miles) which follows a riverbed to the Cascade Waterfall near the Green Hills Guesthouse. It's a mile walk back to Holywell from the guesthouse.
