Description

After starting with a short piece of singletrack, cross the stile and continue up the 4wd road that goes up the hill from the plateau. Alternatively, you could go up the steep Cannon Zig Zag track that also starts from the plateau, though it is more difficult than taking the less steep road up to Valley View Road.

Upon reaching the top of this track, turn right (east) and almost 0.3km up Valley View Road you'll find the start of the Cannon Point Walkway.

Getting there

Starts from the car park in Tulsa Park, at the intersection of Totara Park Road and California Drive.

Ends at a T-intersection with Valley View Road.

Other notes

The first section, up to a plateau at the bottom of Cannon Zig Zag is singletrack, while the remainder is a narrow 4wd track.

Length
