    This walk can be shortened to 13 kms by commencing at the Jack Cann Reserve which is adjacent to the Garden of St Erth.

    In Blackwood, follow the signs to the Garden of St Erth and drive through the carpark to an open space about 40m further on where there is plenty of parking. The walk starts on the track on the right (uphill) approx half way between where you have parked and the carpark.
