This is a great loop that we love to do to relax among the trees. I have vertigo so the 1st bridge is a bit difficult but OK. Nice accesses to the river and its stones beaches, possibility to bath in it. This is a nice and short walk.

This is one of my favorite local trails. Well maintained and easy to access. Went out yesterday after two days of constant rain, I was surprised how well drained the trail is. Apart from a few muddy spots between 3-4km part which is covered by trees, the rest of the trail was dry-ish. Great run. Reasonable flat with little elevation. In terms of shoes, normal road running shoe with decent cushioning should do the trick. As there are some rocky parts in the trail. Lightweight trail shoes preferred if you need the grip but not required.

Great walk. Get the views of mount Mathews airport and the harbour entrance at the different parts of the track. Good mixture of up , down and flat section. Can park the vehicles at southern end at breaker bay or Bowes crescent. Atarturk side had dog play area. Can accommodate buggy and wheelchairs.

Gorgeous trail. Very easy and scenic. Enjoyed it.

Great easy run. Awesome view and plenty of side tracks to add some extra distance.

beautiful easy trail running

We did the mt Matthews was tough going and extreme climb which made it a good challenge and views where worth the sweet . Hard on the knees coming down so don’t take it lightly .

Great trail! Very well marked, above moderate in some locations. Despite the long trail there are very few high vantage points of the scenery below.
