Description

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.

  • Staying Safe

    Easy.

    No wrong turns, this is a single-track course.

    Perfect throughout.

    Short-sleeved thermal top, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, First aid kit, Cellphone, Map.

    There are taps at Dacre Cottage (halfway point).

    Can get muddy after rain in some places so exercise caution, particularly on stair descents.

    Several steep stair descents; it would be very easy to take a tumble of roll an ankle, so be cautious.
