Cobler Rocks Walk

  • Destination: East Coast, The Northeast

Tas Trails

The Trail

The Cobler Rocks walk takes in some of the striking coastline of the Mount Williams National Park. The walk is mostly flat, crossing from fire trails onto beach walking. There is no drinking water provided along this track.

The start of the walk is clearly signposted just outside of the Stumpys Bay no. 4 camping area. From here the trail heads westerly over lightly undulating heathland for just under 3km before coming out onto the beach. Cobler Rocks can be seen directly ahead of you lolling out from the coast. Looking back, the squat peak of Mount Williams can also be seen.

From here a short side track south along the beach leads towards Cod Bay where vast views the southern edge of the Park are seen. To the north, back towards Stumpys Bay, a series of long sweeping beaches are begging to be explored.

Return via the same track.
