Soon after visiting the site of the historic Zig Zag Railway, it begins wandering through the Berowra Creek valley, passing a few cascading creeks. The track undulates along the side of the valley through a range of environments from moist fern forest to the drier grasstrees and eucalypts of the ridge. There is a short side-trip to the Westleigh engravings and a chance to pop down to Fishponds before climbing up the Depression-era stone steps to Hornsby station.
