The track goes from Heathcote station to Waterfall station and you can choose which station you want to start at. Starting at Heathcote you can take an easy walk down to the pool, and then back up to the station. Or you can take a walk from Waterfall and chill at the pools and have a lighter walk back to Heathcote. Pack lunch and take the family or friends. A good day out.
