A major upgrade of the trail has been made possible by significant funding from BHP Billiton and Curdies River Bridge was restored with funding from DSE and Heritage Victoria.

Eventually the trail may be extended 18km on a road side path to the Port Campbell National Park and on to Princetown joining the Great Ocean Walk.

Camperdown – An on-road route is signposted from the railway station to the start of the trail on Naroghid Rd, which is the current start of the trail. There is a shelter, picnic facility and trail maps available about 1 km from the start of this section.

Cobden – a good starting point is McKenzie Street near the Technical School.
To follow the trail north, travel through the golf course and on towards Naroghid.
To head south, follow the sign posts in front of the Fire Shed, then west along the walking /riding track, which runs north for 20m before the sign posts direct you to the left onto the trail beside the Landmark Store. Follow the trail and be prepared for several major road crossings.
