You’ll be rewarded with breathtaking river and city skyline views as it meanders into bays, parks and playgrounds, through bushland and mangroves, past historic sites, Aboriginal cultural heritage sites and art installations.
Take the Epping Road cycle path from Artarmon through to Vimiera Road, Marsfield. From there you can head right up to Turramurra or left and on to Epping or Parramatta.
