This series of trails is a hidden treasure up in the Blue Mountains. Whilst locals have run these tracks for a few years, the Woodford Dam area has only recently been formally opened up for recreation.
The course travels along Wellseley Road and heads down a steepish rocky trail into a valley. In the valley we take a right turn along the unusually named Transit of Venus Track. and head along 1km of single trail past two small waterfalls. Runners will then climb out of the valley and link up with Woodford Creek Trail. Course descends back down towards Woodford Dam and follows the dam edge. Just past the dam the going gets tough with a steep climb up Winbourne Road Fire Trail. This climb lasts about 1km before levelling off at the top of the ridge. The course continues along the ridgeline before reaching the turn point at Winbourne Road gates. After rehydrating, you will turn and retrace your steps back to the start/finish area.
