Lovely walk along hidden creeks and admiring Aboriginal and European cultural impacts. South from the picnic park in Crosslands Reserve following Berowra Creek to Galston Gorge through Berowra Valley Recreational Park. Up the ridge opposite Hornsby Heights; back down to the creek at Fishponds (& trig point); passing the turning to Bluegum Walk in the Elouera Bushland Reserve; skirting Westleigh as far as the Jungo Rest Area in Elouera Park. There are some really amazing rock formations (natural) as well as another Aboriginal Rock Art Site (Westleigh) on this hike. Above Galston Gorge is a lovely viewpoint although the climb is hard.
