Walk 35 Cumberland River – Jebbs Pool
A walk through one of the most spectacular river valleys in the Otways from the river mouth through the deep narrow gorge of the Cumberland River as far as Jebbs Pool. The track is generally rough, and there is a river crossing to negotiate so walkers need to be confident. Do not attempt this walk if the river is high.
