Three Thumbs Reserve
Three Thumbs Hobart Australia
Located just 7km outside of Orford, the Three Thumbs Track is a interesting short hike providing fantastic views of Orford, Spring Bay and Maria Island. The 2 hour, 4km loop walk takes you through dry eucalyptus forest and small sections of temperate rain forest.
It isn't often that the one of the best views from a hike is before you begin but it is the case with the Three Thumbs Track. From the Thumbs picnic area, fantastic views of Maria Island and Spring Bay are on show before walking 50m down to the start of the track.
The initial climb off the road is the steepest of the trail, climbing abruptly to meet the ridge line of the Three Thumbs. Following the ridge line, the trail leads you over the undulating hills of the thumbs.
The third and final Thumb is accessed via some rock spree scrambling, gently climbing to the summit point of 549 metres.
