"You have just discovered one of the great running areas in Sydney. My favourite is the Sydney Harbour Dress Circle. It runs along the northern foreshore from Fig Tree Bridge in Hunters Hill to Chowder Bay near Mosman. The route comprises a section of the Harbour Circle walk and a section of the Harbour Bridge to Spit Bridge walk. The entire route is marked with consistent signage with maps downloadable from the NSW Department of Planning and hard copies available from selected Local Governement offices, e.g. North Sydney, Lane Cove.
This route connects the start of the 2006 Oxfam Trailwalker (GNW) to the start of the 2007 Oxfam Trailwalker (HH).
This might be a good future Fat Ass. Start at Waverton Station (North Shore Line) run to Hunters Hill, back to Waverton (~16KM) then on to Chowder Bay finally returning to Waverton (~12K). This could be a very accesible "un-official" Fat Ass comprising a long run with a short run option. Also lots of taps and loos en route. There are around 30 quiet Bays/Coves and 30 challenging ridges on the full there and back run. Total distance is around 28K to 32K with a climb of around 1,200 metres. Note: This is my guess and needs a "Garmin" confirmation. One third bush trails, one third grassy parks and verges and one third quiet back streets. Ideal for Trail runners.
The convenience and safety of inner city running but tough enough for Six Foot Track training. Any interest?"
