Walk, ride a bike or drive your car to the start of the track near the silos at the Cascade Brewery.
This track provides a link to the network of tracks and fire trails in Wellington Park but it is also a good option for a walk in the bush close to the city, with or without your dog.
The vegetation along this track is quite diverse from open forest to fern-filled gullies. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, there are numerous wallaby runways that cross the track. A lovely arched stone bridge has been built at the first creek crossing to commemorate Peter Degraves, the founder of Cascade Brewery.
At the end of the track you can retrace your steps or continue up kunanyi / Mount Wellington via the Myrtle Gully Track.
