This track starts at the Shipwreck Creek camping area. You can drive there by 4WD and 2WD cars if you go slowly and work your way around pot holes. The track is not maintained and is strewn with bark, twigs, and branches. Beware small branches flicking up and carry a spare hanger. The trail follows the coast and is also a water channel during rain. Expect exposed open roots and some deep ruts. There are some natural tunnels formed under tea tree and the wooden bridges are covered with chicken wire to stop you slipping. There are two sections that travel along the beach. The first at Pebbly Beach which is an easy walk unless it's high tide where you will have to rock climb with your bike along a cliff section to avoid waves. The other beach is Quarry and steep steps are located at each end of the beach back to the track. There are several points along the trail where you can stop and view the ocean with a seat and local information. You will have to use the road for about 1km across Betka River and cross it once more after this. The trail ends at Origami Coffee where an excellent brew is available. This is an easy trail if you take your time and offers magnificent views of the coast with many sightings of whales over the summer months.
