At the start it is an urban walk, then a park walk leading to a trail along a creek. Several cross paths led to some incorrect trail choices. Hang in there past Churchill Ave and the trail becomes steeper and more fun. Great views from the top.

We walked from the bus stop in Churchill Av. It is steep climbing up through the gully, but out on the ridge is open easy walking.
It is a nice selection of native bushland so close to a capital city.
Enjoy a coffee at the Old Signal Station at the top, or there are free BBQs just near the gate.
