This winds through a trees in a park like area before turning left at the stock bank and following it back towards the Expressway.

Follow the track up to the rail bridge, turn left and cross over it on the disused roadway. Carry on for 500m then take the trail heading off down to the left (marked by an orange post) across the small foot bridge.
