Rail to River and Stringybark Creek Reserve Walk is a 11.2km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Lane Cove National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 4 hrs to complete.


This walk begins in the busy city of Chatswood and soon enters the nearby bushland around the Lane Cove River. The walk uses the v-shaped valleys to escape from the houses. Due to pollution and rubbish in stormwater run-off there are some less then pleasant pockets however this walk does explore some wonderful views of the Lane Cove River and its surrounds. You can buy lunch at the Golf course or there are plenty of nice spots along the river to stop and eat.
