Here the walk explores the dry grasstree and eucalypt forest along the side of the ridge before heading down into the moist, ferny valley beside Lane Cove River. Near the top of the valley the walk moves up some stone steps built during the Great Depression to find some rock engravings with 1930s-style political satire, known as Conscript Pass. A side-trip provides access to the scout campsite, while the main walk continues through the streets to find Thornleigh train station.
