This section of the trail has not been funded for construction, as further investigations are needed.

This section of the trail will be approximately 15.5km long.

From Grey River, the trail will cross the Great Ocean Road to the coastal side, heading towards Cape Patton. It will then cross the Great Ocean Road and head up ‘The Rise’ for 3.5km via a new trail section, before arriving at Carisbrook Falls.

The trail will then descend to Carisbrook River, following it for 500m to the car park. The walk will then cross the Great Ocean Road to return to the ocean side for a stretch of about 10-11km of beachside walking.

The route will hug the coastline and is a mix of beach and trail walking all the way to Skenes Creek.

A short loop walk is proposed from Grey River to Cape Patton. It will start at the Grey River car park, along a track to the beach, and will then head south on the beach for 500m. The walk will then climb off the beach and onto a plain at the base of Cape Patton before winding its way north to connect back to beach access track and car park.

From Skenes Creek a walking trail to Apollo Bay is currently being planned by Colac Otway Shire.
