Basic Trail Description and special attributes:

This is an easy walk that passes at a gentle slope, through areas of flax and pasture, along the hillside below Sandy Bay Ridge, and provides a few fantastic views down towards Sandy Bay itself. Much of the trail is in the shade of large trees. The trail ends at the Post Box at a junction with two other trails.
