K9 (Grade 1 – 2 Beginner)

As you are heading up the main road past the BMX track, there is a gravel track that starts on your right, climbs through shurbs and circuits around the outside of the football playing fields, up a small rise and around the dog kennel area, then up to the top playing field.

Access Info

From the OCTAGON (6km, 10min). Head north along George St all the way to the Gardens Shopping Area. Drive down North Rd to just before the Normandy Tavern (where the road starts climbing) then veer left onto Norwood St. Carry on up this narrow road until you get to Bethunes/Gully Forrester Park (BMX Track). If you turn left, this leads you to Bethunes Gully. If you follow the road right (past the BMX track), you get to Forrester Park.
