Galston Road Fire Trail
A great bush run with some views over the valley towards the Quarry Road Track. There is a short 300m length of road which needs to be traversed between fire trails.
Surface is mostly fire trail with a few short concrete sections and a short run along the Outlook road.
None, but Galston Road is only a short distance away.
Toilets in Rofe Park, and three sets of shops along Galston Road.
Run Route Details
Start at the intersection of Montview Parade and Galston Road. Cross Galston Road and run through Ulolo Park across two roads - note that the park narrows here. You will come to a green gate, run past this and veer left and then right down a steep hill. After 100-200m, veer left down a steep hill to join up with the fire trail, which after a few minutes will enter the side road off the Outlook. Run up the side road, then to the right around the Outlook to another green gate at the end of the cul-de-sac. Run along the covered track, across a stream, then up a steep incline to some concrete. Take the right turn (left goes up to the bush fire-brigade) and then down and up a steep valley. Keep running along the fire trail until it comes out at Clarinda st. Go past anther green gate, through a swamp to a narrow path, which then leads to Stewart Ave, and the start of the Quarry Rd track. Run down here for 1k to the start of the drop off and return the same way.
