Devils Thumb (Manjal Jimalji) trail

Located in the Mossman Gorge, Daintree National Park, the Devils Thumb (Manjal Jimalji) trail begins at Little Falls Creek. This challenging trail provides an opportunity for explorers to discover the unique vegetation of the upland and lowland rainforest, as well as the amazing range of bird life native to the region. Manjal Jimalji is the Eastern Kuku Yalanji place name for the locally known Devils Thumb and is a significant cultural site that tells the story of fire creation.

On a clear day, hikers can enjoy stunning views of the coastline from the lookout. The trail requires a decent level of fitness – so be prepared for steep ascents and slippery surfaces. The trail is broken up into sections identified by natural landmarks and distance markers have been placed at 1km intervals along the route to help you track your progress.
