Starting from Bridge Street, Redwood, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Redwood Park mostly via the Redwood Forest Walk and Bridle Trail. Explore the vast green areas and take in the fresh air as you hike along the peaceful park. BBQs, picnic tables and a playground await you and your kids. Keep an eye out for cute little hares and echidnas along with some equally sweet bird species. You can also bring some people that want to get into hiking, as this is a great choice for beginners. As a plus, dogs are also able to use this track considering they’re on a leash. Get in there, enjoy the scenery and end the hike with a satisfactory picnic. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
