Starting at Newlands Forest Station you walk towards the mountain and take the path to the right where the road forks. The walk is in the shade most of the time due to the large growth of pine trees. During the walk there is a view overlooking Newlands and later some of Bishops Court, crossing two streams during this walk.
With the mountain as a backdrop and the scenic views all around, there are opportunities for photographs. There are many interlinking paths and if you ever did wonder off track then walk, keeping the mountain behind you, and you should reach a path back to the main road.
