M7 North - Bungarribee Park, Doonside, Seven Hills

Both my boys were running in a Cross Country carnival at Eastern Creek raceway near the crossing of the M4 and and M7. They ran well. After that my wife was happy to take me to my hastily selected Bungarribee Park in Western Sydney Parklands. It turned out to be a really good park and the boys had some fun in the park whilst I got ready.

I then rode off through some nice parkland, I nearly got a great shot of an eagle taking off from the edge of the trail. I headed to Doonside Station which was almost all double lane bike trail except for the last 500 metres to the station. Parents, you consider Bungarribee Park to Doonside Station a kids track.

 

Cross the railway using the ramps at the station and arrive at Cross St. There was a couple of coffee shops and some other shops. This station would be a good place to bring the kids to ride around this area as the parks are interesting and fun.

 

Now I headed down Cross St to Narragingy Reserve. This nice park has good wide trails and is home to the

Chang Lai Yuan Chinese Gardens.  These are impressive.

 

Head across a small bridge and join a wide track heading North.  Follow the trail to Woodstock Ave and follow that up to the M7. Join the M7 on the far side.  There was a dirt track heading further up Eastern Creek section but it looked pretty wet, so I stayed on the concrete.

 

You are now in Plumpton, not far south is Rooty Hills station, I went north and soon after the M7 goes east. I followed the M7 for another 20km or so until the Seven Hills turnoff.  The M7 trail north of Rooty Hill is maybe even better than the trail on the south side.  I thought I was flying but my speed was as slow as ever as I had to pump my tires twice for a slow leak {Hint: Carry a pump}.

 

The trail from M7 to Seven Hills is really easy and downhill except for the last 2 km which is not great but passable. I just went slowly along the footpath, passed over the railway line on the Prospect Highway and then went under the highway and ended up at the shops.  I ate some nice Sri Lankan takeaway.

 

Getting to the train station is easy up a ramp and there are lifts.
