Hike Summary

From the Jordan River Bridge, East Derwent Highway, the track follows the Derwent River foreshore to the east around Gagebrook, to Lamprill Circle. There are a couple of shelters along the way which are great for a picnic or just a rest. Plenty of birdlife can be seen around the shallow wetlands along the foreshore including black swans, cormorants, pelicans and white faced herons. There are great views up and down the river and of kunanyi / Mount Wellington.
