An unimproved trail which provides an extended downhill from John Cousins Walking Track.

Description

Just after the start of the second descent of John Cousins Walking Track a signposted turnoff marks the start of the Kangaroo Walking Track. Those running the trail near dawn or dusk will quickly see the reason for the name as a large number of kangaroos live on the reserve. This trail sees significantly less traffic and as such the surface is primarily covered in grass. This makes the surface quite rough to run on but it's nice when it's dry.

The first half of the trail runs downhill toward the university. From there, the halfway point is marked by a gate connecting to the university and the trail leads downhill toward a bridge over a (usually dry) creek bed. The ends of the bridge are not flush with the ground so runners will need to be careful not to trip. After the bridge, the trail leads uphill for a while then levels out before rejoining with the John Cousins Walking Track.
