We spotted pig wallows near waterways, with moss rubbed off the lower trunks of trees, and destroyed vegetation. At one point we heard the noise of a fairly big group of pigs just after the second creek crossing.
Halfway down the track is the Clohesy Curtain Fig Tree boardwalk. We saw curtain figs, wait-a-while vines, and a massive scrubfowl leaf mound.
We thought the hollowed out area in one of the curtain figs was cool, and would make a great impromptu shelter in the forest.
Finally at the end of the Clohesy River Road, the track connected to the Copperlode Dam / Lake Morris access road. Vehicle access to this road is allowed only by permit as it belongs to the Cairns Water Supply.
If you are like us you'll go have a look-see anyway, but like us you'll come up against locked access gates and have to turn back! However, pedestrian access is allowed so if you're up for a bit of a hike, you're free to hike down to the water reservoir.
On the way back to the highway, we stopped at one of the creek crossings for lunch and a splash in the icy cold creek with the kids. Despite hating long drives, the kids were demanding to come back again, so the Dinden has made our favourites list!
Don't litter! We had to pick up rubbish at one of the creek crossings.
