Description

The main trail travels along Alex Creek to where it flows into Walanaik Cove. Walanaik Cove is usally filled with sailboats at the Marina. As the trail travels along the stream it goes underneath the Tree-Go challenges. At the mouth of the stream the trail splits. Going left will take you out along the cove and into some fields overlooking the cove. Turning right will take you up the hill and past a small waterfall.

Just after the waterfall the trail comes to another junction. Turning left will take you through a couple of fields and then back down into the valley near the start of the trail. Turning left will take you out to the Tree-Go parking lot.
