Canterbury Road to Eastfield Road.
This section is 2.6 kms and a very easy walk it is.


It is a sealed, wide, flat path and easy going for wheelchairs.


In sections where there is a steep drop into the creek, there are safety fences, although the creek only flows after heavy rain.


Access can be made from many of the small streets that culminate at the creek and several bridges span the creek, giving access to the trail from both sides.


Although there are houses along both sides of the creek, they are not that evident due to the many small and large trees growing along the banks.


Bench seats are placed along the trail for those who need a rest or to just soak up the tranquillity of the area.


It is a popular trail for cyclists, so you need to keep an eye and ear open for them. All the ones I encountered gave me an audible warning of their approach from behind.


Like all suburban trails, dogs taking their owners for a walk are always encountered.


Being a watercourse, albeit dry, the only bird life encountered was a kit of pigeons. Heard, but not seen, were magpies chortling in overhead trees.


If you are commencing the walk from the Eastfield Road end it begins on Yvonne Avenue and continues on both sides of the busy Bayswater Road, with pedestrian activated traffic lights to cross the road.

Perhaps not as scenic as the trail from Eastwood Road to Croydon section it is still an enjoyable walk or ride, the wide paths easily accommodating those on wheels, feet or paws.

Whichever end you begin your walk, the trail is well signposted.
