A great circumnavigation of Rough Island that works out nicely as a recovery run or beginner loop. It is easy to extend with the nearby Rabbit Island Route if wanting something a little more.
Navigation is pretty easy. GPX leads clockwise. Avoid roads unless no other options are available and keep to the fringes.
A small trail starts right from the parking area. At the west most point you will need to pick through a small piece of unmarked grassy area and you'll pop out at a parking area after a short while. From here follow the walking trail that will take you back east and towards the pines.
Near the main road, follow a small section of the 'Great Taste Trail' that will lead back to the start. Great to run near high tide - this makes it much more scenic. There may be a few small bits minorly under water, but should be able to jump over these!
