Some walkers have had difficulty finding the continuation of the trail at where it crosses Cowan Creek. The confusion stems from the fact that the trail divides about 50m before the creekbed. The trail straight ahead has now been closed (probably because it is steep and very eroded). The much better and easier trail heads off right (at the hole in the ground) and descends down and across Cowan Creek. Orange markers have been installed.
IMPORTANT UPDATE (Spring 2009): All of the original EMERGENCY SIGNPOSTS in the gorge have been replaced with new EMERGENCY MARKERS by ESTA (Emergency Services and Telecommunications Authority). Of major concern, however, is that the original numbering has been changed. The old (original) numbering is in use in a number of available publications, including two of our own books and in the very popular Lerderderg and Werribee Gorges Meridian map. Walkers using our guides and the Meridian map must not confuse the original numbering with the new numbering. Please download the following PDF which spells out all the changes and even includes the Emergency Markers GPS coordinates: LERDERDERG STATE PARK EMERGENCY MARKERS
