Description [Suggest Changes]

This track climbs from Happy Valley Road up to Hawkins Hill. The entrance is marked by a barrier/gate. The trail climbs steadily and steeply with a welcome saddle section in the middle. In that section, there is a track going off to the left but stay on the main trail to continue up to Hawkins Hill. About 400m from the top is the intersection to the Red Rocks Track.
