A nice out and back alongside the Taieri River. Starting at Outram Glen carpark you head on to the track and then follow the easy to find track along to its ending where Lee Stream meets the Taieri River. It's got some lovely spots, some up and downs, so tricky footing in places, a good wee work out for a shot run.

I did it!
  • Access

    Heading towards Outram from Mosgiel, take a right just after the bridge (George King Memorial Drive) and the entrance to the carpark is just on the river side of that road about 20m in.

    Plenty of parking, pretty secluded, so keep valuables out of sight.

    Windproof jacket, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    There's the Taieri River and Lee Stream, but I wouldn't drink out of them... so no, bring your own.

    Likely to be plenty of water on track after rain from many small streams.

    Roots, tripping hazards etc
