SYDNEY - THE STEPS HIKE 23 MAY 2016

The Step trail is in Lane Cove National Park, Sydney.



I parked neared the tennis courts at Canoon Road Turramurra. The start of the hike was a mess - very wide, eroded, concrete and tar and a few fenced off areas for preservation. The area is definitely denuded and in need of TLC. Still, a start as been made.



After a short distance, there was a track to the left leading down steps. Yes, the start of the Step trail. The track meandered up, down and around before descending to the Lane Cove River. Along the way, there were a few highlights - a view point over the surrounding trees and some dried and semi damp creeks. The best part of the hike was descending past a dried rocky steep creek. At this point, the track was very scenic as it winded up, down and around boulders with various plants interspersed.


The track at the base is a dirt service road that follows the river and eventually, leads to another service road that goes back to the carpark.


An easy and enjoyable 2km hike along the top of the ridge.
