    Disability access level - medium

    • The walking track follows a concrete path through bushland, between Bellamy Street, Pennant Hills and De Saxe Close, Thornleigh.
    • The path is suitable for wheelchairs, prams, and visitors with limited mobility, for the first 300m. From here, there's a short steep hill after the bridge crossing Zig Zag Creek, which requires assistance. There's a handrail on 1 side of the hill.
    • Assistance may be required to pass through the bollards at either end of this walking track.
    • There's a picnic table near the Bellamy Street end of the walk and low, log seating in the amphitheatre, around half way.

    Medium access presents some minor difficulties, such as a grassy surface. You may require a little assistance to get around in some areas.
