Starting from the signpost on Cemetery Rd, you follow the yellow markers up through the farm paddocks. Continue following the markers for the duration of the track. After about 2.5km the track enters a stand of native bush and winds it way through. Once out, there is a little sidle then one last hill to head up before reaching the trig at the top of the track. There are different options for making your way back down and these are signposted clearly.

There is parking along the side of the cemetery on Knoll St, which allows the vehicle to be off the road.

Cool little run with a cross country vibe going through the farm paddocks. You will get animal shit on your nice clean running shoes. Nice little stand of bush towards the top, I wouldn't recommend doing this track if its getting dark and you don't have a headtorch.
