Some manual wheelchair users may require assistance on return. The track edges are slightly graded for drainage. The track may get muddy when wet. There are no steps or low overhead obstacles.

Points of Interest

1. Mahogany car park

Mahogany car park is to the right just inside the main gate off Horswood Rd. There are no accessible spaces. Park near the top to avoid having to walk or roll through the car park to get to the walk.

2. Start your walk or roll

Follow the path to the left of the map and information sign to get to Logan Park Track. It is a locked service vehicles only track. The gateway gap to the post here is 1.5 meters.

3. Kangaroos

Almost as soon as you begin you are likely to meet with some of the large and healthy kangaroo population.

4. Lake Circuit turn off

The Lake Circuit may be partially accessible to some mobility aid users. This is a better spot to pick it up than taking the rougher and narrower section that runs parallel to Logan Park Track.

5. Lake Circuit floodway

If you do choose to walk or roll some of the Lake Circuit from this corner you are likely to have to cross this 0.85 meter floodway footbridge. Note there are lips at either end and no wheel buffers.

6. Forest views

The Lysterfiled Park forest is fabulous to look at. This track gives you great views of it as you make your way along.

7. Equestrian Trail

There is an equestrian trail for horse riders along the eastern side of the Logan Park Track. If you like to watch horses this is great for getting up close. It turns off here into the forest.

8. The verge

The track has a broad verge on the side before the trees thicken into forest. Look out for wildflowers in warmer months and fungi and moss in the cooler months.

9. Cyclists

Lysterfield Park is a very popular mountain biking location because the trails are great and the forest is beautiful. There is plenty of room for mobility aid users to pass or be passed.
