Great walk with lots of goannas and a fab lunch on the water at the Eatery at Bobbin Head.
Took the Bobbin Head trail down and Warimoo back.

This is great early morning walk, took us 2:33 minutes with medium pace !

I used the directions feature of the app to find this track, but it was not signposted at the start point so was tricky to find. Look for the Coal and Candle Rural Fire Brigade sign near 301 McCarrs Creek Rd. Park on the roadside and make your way to the trail, which by the way is not signposted as Duck Holes Trail. As it's a loop you eventually end up on Duck Holes trail and then after running on West Head Rd for a while you will end up on Centre Track to loop back around where you started. The trail was a mix of loose rock - good trail running shoes a must -- gravel and some soft sand. I think this run is closer to 12K than 15K - unless I missed something. Didn't see any other users on the trail.

Beautiful walk

Decided to go clockwise getting the dull dirt track out of the way first. When we descended on the marina and the park the views were lovely. We stopped here for lunch. There's a cafe and Bobbin in if you'd like a bite and a drink. The second half of the track is scenic and along the water. Final ascend to the sphinx is a few stairs. Takes about 20 min.

A beautiful day. I went the reverse direction down Sphinx trail with a stop at the marina cafe for a cappucino and brunch before going back up Warrimoo. The entry fee is $12 which you can avoid by parking on the side of the road before the gate. The trail head is within easy walking distance from the road.
