Easy Walk. Gravel most of the distance with some parts dirt. Not steep. Nice views of the hills and valleys but none of the coast. Starts near the mobile tower at Merricks Store end and ends opposite Pt Leo road stores.

Glad I found this trail - perfect for young kids (starting at Belmont, there is a long, but gradual uphill section - but coming back is easy). Cafe near the end, and a few beaches are in relatively easy reach of the track. We had a swim at Nine Mile Beach on the way back. Rail tunnel is lots of fun!
