It's useful as it provides a shortcut between Gardiners Creek Trail and Anniversary Trail. These two paths converge 2.5 km further to the south, so it can cut 2.6km off a circuit utilising the Gardiners Creek Trail and the Anniversary Trail.

Following the Path

The path effectively follows the route of the old Ashburton Creek, which is now completely barrel drained. The path meets Gardiners Creek Trail at Nettleton Park Reserve near a footbridge over the creek. Following the path is straight forward except at the west side of Glen Iris Rd where it splits in two. Take the south path, cross Glen Iris Rd and continue on the south side of Ferndale Park by the oval and toilet block. Continuing to the east, the trail meets the Alamein railway line 0.4km north of Ashburton Station. The Anniversary Trail runs north south, parallel to the railway line.

Connections

Connects to the Gardiners Creek Trail in the west and the Anniversary Trail in the east.
