This is short trail run suitable as a training route. The trail a mixture of sealed paths and rough goat tracks over undulating terrain. Some sections are reasonably steep and/or narrow. The beginning of the route is a short excursion via the Sandstone Circuit to both the Western Lookout and Sandstone Lookout. Unfortunately the view is nothing much to enjoy as the trees obstruct the vista but the climb serves to get the heart rate started. Thanks to Mander for the original idea Toohey Forest 8.4km / 3 hr walk.

If going clockwise around the track, it starts off with pathways and then the second half of the track is loose rocks, little washed out and muddy due to recent rain. Small gully’s of water, few wildlife to sight, few bench seats if you need to stop along the way, bbqs and undercover shaded picnic tables, lots of parking - no toilets. I loved it, will be back for sure.

Good walk especially with the cooler day today. Some good inclines and some off bitumen paths, trail could be confusing with all the intertwining tracks but would recommend for somewhere close and gets the heart beat up at points. Some interesting big rocks, not a lot to see through the trees. Easy to park at and find.

Good trail for fitness, main tracks are bitumen. No great views despite many steep sections. Half walked half ran and finished the 9.5 kms in an hour and 20 mins. Nice bush land.
