Route is well signed posted. Started from the Ashhurst carpark you go under the highway and go up the hill. Once at the highest point it undulates until the climb down to the Woodville end (please note there is a slip on the track which closed the track preventing an exit at the Woodville end. You will only get about 16km run to the closed track point and back to the carpark until this slip is cleared).
There are currently no members to show for this trail.
