Nice short out and back walk with plenty of shade and nice creeks for the kids or dog to play. A short side trail to waterfall at the top is worth checking out. Shame you can’t quite loop it back around via golf course and local streets back into the Bush, as it’s quite steep. Lost a star because of some ugly cemented areas.

A wide fire trail running next to Bluckbutt creek. You’ll need to verge off the trail to view the creek properly in most places. It’s well worth tramping through the bush to view the creek though! We went right after a long period of rain so we were able to see the creek in all its glory. Probably not as amazing during a dry period though.

Good round trip through Gloucester Trail, St Johns Ave and then back via Kendall St (shops).

First to Review

Great beginners walk. Plenty of street parking in the surrounding side streets. We went at 9am so it was shaded the whole way, just as well as it got to 40 later on. Creek is almost non existent At the moment but the crossing was still a little slippery with moss. Great extra set of stairs up on the left as you’re heading down if you want some stair climb practice. You could start from either end if you wanted, entry by the gate next to the bus stop at the other end. Saw a few locals on the trail. I think it would be quite slippery when wet.
