Description

This short loop track is best done from west to east, as the western half of the track is rather steep. Parts of the track are indistinct as you head down the western hillside, but watch out for the intermittent yellow markers attached to trees and you'll be fine.

Near the middle of this track there is a short no exit branch that ends with a seat and lookout over Houghton Bay. It's well worth stopping to admire the inspiring view.

Getting there

The top (western) end is 20m from a T-intersection on Sinclair Park where a branch goes off to Buckley Road.

The bottom (eastern) end rejoins Sinclair Park further down the hill.

Length

0.52km
