Short and steep with rewards. At the top is North Epping Bowling Club, at the bottom is Whale Rock.
Whale Rock is very popular with walkers, especially kids and people with access issues (the elderly).
This is fairly straight, is of a consistent grade and tends to have conflict issues between riders. There are signs warning riders to slow down. There is a tap at the Day Street end. It's easy to miss. As you leave LCNP it is on your left, after the short rocky crest, against a chain mesh fence. Often with a dog bowl under it. If you get to the picnic table on the right and have not found the tap, you missed it. It was back about 20m.
This is one of the easier fire trails to ride in Lane Cove National Park. The trail follows the valley floor and hops back and forth across the creek often via a number of concrete fords. This trail passes Whale Rock. After rain the fords are anything from trickling to flooding with water. This trail is nice and cool to ride in summer.
