Attempt this if you are confident in your abilities, and your fitness, there are multiple road crossings so be aware of cars and trucks.

Tough loop around Smiths Gully. Good fun and includes most of Smith Gullies best trails.

Watch for large branch hanging over trail in the top 1/4 of trail. (Widow Maker!) Ready to come down at any moment. Other than that, trail is mostly clear with a small amount of debris and the usual loose rocks in sections.

Trail predominantly clear and dry following on from damaging wind and rain during the week. However, watch for debris close to trail edge, branches sit hung up in trees and a large limb on a switch back approx. 300m from the intersection with Link Track.
