Last weekend I also visited the Goblin Forest Walk.
Why did I do that?
Well, a good question. I was looking for the mythical lost town of Poimena, and it’s up at the Goblin Forest Walk.
Why is it called the Goblin Forest Walk?
Because of the goblins, I suppose.
How do you get there?
Well, the easiest way is to teleport. If that option isn’t available, I’d suggest flying. If using more mundane means of transport, perhaps a car will do. Turn off the Tasman Highway at this sign (possibly only visible if driving east). The road is unsealed, but passable by two-wheel drive vehicles.
Otherwise, here’s a couple of maps…
This short trudge is situated on the Blue Tier Forest Reserve, and is the starting point of numerous walks and mountain bike trails.
Maybe it could be called Goblin Forest Hub? It seems more apt. I wonder who I should suggest this name change to?
Maybe… the Goblin King?
But which one?
Hmmm, this may be harder than I thought…
The walk itself is quite easy. A short flat 500m loop through the forest. Forest that’s been regrown since there was a tin mine up in these parts. There’s loads of signs that will tell you all about it. The walk is well-maintained, and no special gear is needed. It’s even wheelchair friendly.
Here’s a link to my Endomondo tracker. I did go a bit off the trails to do some poking around.
Thanks for reading!
