Estimated Times to Run







There's an information board at the carpark which is in the middle of the two arms of this trail. Start with the right hand side and just keep left, this will take you all the way around the perimeter. There's a composting toilet near the start, plenty of picnic tables through out so this is a great choice to bring the kids along to. Passing the carpark on the way back takes you out and back along the other arm of the reserve.

Community project regenerating lowland forest and a stunning, crystal clear river.

If you know of any public toilets near the trail start or on the route, please login and then let us know so we can update this section.

There's a small carpark off South Eyre Rd.

There's no water on site apart from the Silver Stream which looks terrific.

Good trail in any weather.

Nice cruise after a tough weekend. Potential is a few years as more bush grows back.

Be nice for walking the dogs. Track hard to work out

Nice escape nestled in between farms and lifestyle blocks. Lots of seating around to enjoy the environment and an amazing crystal clear stream that is mesmerising to look at and see all the life beneath the surface.
