Is mostly rocky/sandy firetrail, the last hundred metres is single-track and goes out to a point.
Is a good trail if you want to stretch your legs and explore the track-side rock platforms and take in great views across Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.

       Some short steep pinches can be a challenge due to loose or sandy track.

       Scenic look out at the end. Some loose rocks and sandy; nice trail for a quick ride. Vehicle entry of $12 to enter national park required.
