Easy entrance off of Haigh's Access Rd, where there is plentiful parking. It's a single track out-and-back. Some really good climbs, and lots of stairs. Most of the track is covered by bush, and there is also a beach option around the headland accessible at low-tide.
There are currently no members to show for this trail.
Features of interest
Lots of beautiful native bush. At the halfway point there is a lovely old homestead and a dotterel nesting area on the beach.
