Description

Dogs allowed if on a lead. No pig hunting dogs though!

Very easy route to follow. From Tulsa Park follow the only track that takes you in to the hills. There are a couple of wooden steps and a couple of stiles on the route. Single track takes you to a Y junction which is signposted 'Cannon Point Trig via zig-zag' (right) and 'via Valley View Road' (left). Go right for a shorter but steeper climb to the trig. At the top of zig-zag U turn left and you'll see the track that takes you up to the trig, if you had turned right you would end up at Birchville Dam.

From the trig (there's a bench if you need a breather) head downhill until you come to another junction, turn left and keep going downhill. This will bring you back to the Y junction, follow the sign for Totara Park. Track is used by walkers, runners and mountain bikers, there is enough space to overtake, at the narrowest you may want to stand side on for bikes.
