  • Thank you very much for posting this. Had an excellent walk along this trail, which is pretty well maintained, just yesterday. I would not have found it, or had the confidence to look for it, without your post.

    I’ve always hesitated at doing the walk as I thought it was private property in the section after the dairy (Jumping Creek side)?

      Hmm, I’m not sure about the private property. Maybe someone local can offer advice? Sometimes along creeks and rivers, you have to watch out for landowners who may not realise that a lot of creek and river frontage is crown land. I was chased off one hike because the landowner thought he had rights that he didn’t.

Leave a Review.
