Very simple straightforward point to point track...the only off-shoot is at about 900m where there is a small track to the right where the main trail turns left. The wee trail is worth a quick look as it brings you to a great lookout spot. It appears that it then decends rapidly down to the road but I turned around and went back to the main trail. At about 1.5km you come to the end of the trail on State Highway 1 a bit south of you start, you then retrace your steps.
