Description

Follow the Rockburn Branch Trail around most of the way, and when you come to a wooden bridge on the trail, keep to the left. Carry on until you come to a thin tree with a purple blaze. The trail to the left isn't obvious, but you'll see it if prepared. Soon you'll come to a river crossing where there are stepping stones to go across, or if the temperatures are good, just continue straight through!

Keep running along the trail at this point where there are some short and steep uphill sections with rocks. Cross the lane and carry on the trail for the home stretch. Beware that if the trail is wet at this point, it can be quite tricky to complete the whole length at a consistent speed. I had to slow down a fair bit when it was too muddy. Furthermore, this section is popular with mountain bike riders so there will be tire tracks to contend with. Just watch your footing here. You'll soon come to a junction where the trail meets Morning Choice Trail.

Getting pretty torn up from the mountain bikes. A lot of areas you have to go around.
