Clarence Coastal Trail – Cremorne To Mays Beach – Sunday 5 Dec

The Cremorne to Mays Beach track is part of the Clarence Coastal Trail and links Cremorne Beach Park and the southern end of Mays Beach. Come join us for the last southern walk of the year – a family friendly, 4.5km afternoon walk which will be only the one way. The track is hilly but the walk should take no longer than 2 hours. The hills are there to make you stop and take in the spectacular views across Frederick Henry Bay to Primrose Sands and Tasman Peninsula. Your leader recommends wearing trousers and sturdy shoes as there are parts through paddocks and grass overhanging the track but also be prepared for some time paddling along Mays Beach as we end the walk.
