Allow three hours for the walk one way along the Northern Fire Trail.


From the Picnic Ground find the fire trail near the lower corner beside the tree plantings (Metasequoia). There is a locked gate and, as you are walking through private property, please keep to the fire trail. It goes to the left and down. This is the Northern Fire Trail and wanders below the houses and eventually comes out near the Study Centre. It is a good bush walk with a variety of vegetation and some nice views to the north and a long uphill section.
