Scotchmans Creek is quite simply a joggers dream in a city surrounded by concrete and steel. I jog this trail around three/four times a week and find it almost therapeutic - it is also great for family walks, bike rides and if you're close enough...More

I regularly cycle sections of Scotchmans Creek trail. Some sections are good for cycling, others are too narrow, rough, poorly signed or through local (or main) roads. Hence, I ride this track to the city with slower cyclists. From Jells Park you can follow this...More

We did a 10 km walk with our dogs on leash and we all really loved it. There was water stations near the roads (these are a long way apart) and easy paths. This is a flood mitigation area that has been built up with...More

In any long trail, the character can change along its length. The Trail is quite beautiful for its native vegetation and has fairly good surfaces along it. I traveled from Warrigal Road to Stephensons Road (about 4km). In this section there were no toilets and...More
