Lake Morris

Lake Morris & Kahlpahlim Rock Lake Morris or Copperlode dam & Kahlpahlim Rock

A scenic drive off Reservoir Rd with great views on the drive up of Trinity Bay, Freshwater valley and Mulgrave valley. The road is narrow so be cautious and wary of cyclists. There is a barbecue area with a grandstand perch overlooking Lake Morris. A great place for breakfast with the birds.

Lake Morris was formed by damming Freshwater Creek which runs down through Crystal Cascades and the Freswater valley into the Barron River. Walkers or cyclists can cross the dam wall and climb the gate which bars the track on the other side. The track passes through dense rainforest as it traverses the Lamb range, crosses the Clohesy River and comes out on the Kuranda-Mareeba road.

The big red rock face across the lake is Kahlpahlim Rock, on the Lamb Range which runs up to Lake Tinaroo. There is a walking trail to Kahlpahlim (also known as Lamb's Head) from Davies Creek National Park. It is rated a difficult walk, takes 6+ hours return, but the view from the top is sensational. Use the link below for more details.
