Due to limited parking at the town end, it is recommended visitors to the area park at the Harvey Dam recreation area off Weir Road and walk towards town in a westerly direction. You will find the start of the trail at the far end of the bottom carpark near the children's playground equipment.

The trail follows Weir Road past bushland, small scale farms and urban areas. Keep an eye out for the Parks and Wildlife offices as the open space around them is where a cluster of timber mill houses once stood. You will see a variety of trees that were part of the mill house gardens, where generations of children once played.

The trail slopes gently from both ends with a moderately steep section in the middle.

It crosses a couple of roads, so take special care with children.

Mornings and evenings you may be privilidged to see a kangaroo hiding in the bush and during the day you will be accompanied by a variety of native birds.

In May/June the wattles start flowering, heralding the beginning of the wildflower season that lasts right through until November.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
