Tasmanians will know if the state's next iconic multi-day hike planned for the state's West Coast will go ahead by the middle of the year.

The ABC reports, Tender documents for the second stage of the development, planned for the Tyndall Ranges — between Tullah and Queenstown — state a feasibility study determining if the project is viable should be complete in coming months.

The documents show the proposed route for the walks, which will ideally consist of three and two-day treks, plus a series of part and full-day walks.

Under the plan, camping sites and covered accommodation would be built on the eastern shore of Lake Huntley and below the almost 1,200m-tall Mt Geikie.

Stage two of the project will only go ahead if the feasibility study identifies an ideal route, with the winning bidder then tasked with getting development approval for the project and completing an environmental impact assessment.

The preferred corridor for the walks runs north-south from Lake Plimsoll to the Lake Margaret power station and east of Mt Geikie and Mt Tyndall.

Walkers would catch a bus from Queenstown to both the start and end of the walk.
