The track can be started from two entrances on Longhurst Terrace and can also be accessed mid-section from the main car park at Victoria Park.

This walk has lots of variety, passing through a mixture of exotic and regenerating native forest. It heads up past the downhill mountain bike tracks and jumps at Victoria Park and finishes with a stunning view over the Canterbury Plains from Sugarloaf Reserve.

When you're ready, return the same way or link up with the Harry Ell Track or Bowenvale Valley Track to get back to Victoria Park.
