Follows an old fence-line through open farmland, and connects Highcliff Road/Soldier's Monument to Ocean Grove and Tomahawk Lagoon .

Always a bit of an adventure on a bike as there are numerous fence-crossings to contend with, and the track is typically pretty overgrown with long grass. Is best ridden going in a downhill direction.

A good hike either way.

Access Info

Access to the track is off Oregon Street with parking in the Tomahawk Carpark. The start of the trail is a gap in the fence at the end of the carpark.

Alternatively the track can be accessed from the Soldier's Monument trail. On the way to the Monument look for an orange/yellow marker pole next to the fence marking the start of the track.
