HikingGreat!

Mostly bush, close to suburbia. Varied with a couple of slightly more technical bits. done parts will get muddy after rains. Nice variety of bushland from mangroves to dry sandstone. I took a shortcut to North Ryde station behind the Honeywell building. My recording missed the first section.

Part of the Great North Walk on Hunters Hill side of Lane Cove River. Through Lovetts Reserve, Blackman Park and Ventemens Reach on Lane Cove West side. A great wander close to suburbia. Plenty of bush land. Some road walking to make a loop. Plenty of walkers/joggers/dog lovers making good use of the track. Plenty of options for cafe stops and public toilets.

The bush sections along the river are spectacular and relatively easy bush walking. A few wet and muddy sections. Some great board walks thru mangroves. The return via burns bay rd is a little busy after the calm of the bush. Note there is a section near Epping Rd that had closed signs, you can proceed but it is an asbestos risk. Detours are available via the roads marked Mars Rd.

Great trail - little technical in places which makes for a slower run. But otherwise lovely. Some nice places to open and run. I imagine after heavy rain it could be tough going.

First to Review

A great run which extends on to Thornleigh to make half marathon distance. Not sure about the ‘Easy’ classification given here. Although there are boardwalk sections there are a couple of steps sections my mother wouldn’t dream of tackling. Moderate. Bush turkeys, lizards, plenty of Australian birdlife. Easy 506 bus ride from CBD and train back.
