Strathfield Station to Tempe and Mascot on the Cooks River Trail

An express train at 7:30 am to Strathfield from Central will take barely 20 minutes. Getting off the platform at Strathfield is easy, finding the Cooks River track involves going down 2 roads as per map below. Those roads are Redmyre Rd and Ada Avenue. The track starts at the golf course and heads east. Its downhill to the airport and the section near Strathfield is the best.

 

First three photos are the roads to the start of the trail. The rest are in order to the end.

 

Notes on trail: Good for all bike styles, there are 10 road crossings. Please take care as only 2 of them are actual pedestrian crossings. Halt in the middle of the island. The station at Strathfield has ramps and is perfect for getting off. When leaving Strathfield station, go slow on footpaths till you leave the heavy traffic behind after 1km.

Tempe station pictured has lots of stairs and on the weekend a train every half hour. An alternative is Wolli Creek station which also has trains to Central, lifts and there are coffee shops in the precinct.  16km to Temp Station and 20km to Mascot Station. If you want to get off in the middle of the trail, Canterbury Station is 100m from the trail on Canterbury Road.  You need to carry your bike down the small stairs if you are heading to the city. Ramp on the side from the city.

 

The map below shows the trail through to Coward St Mascot. The pictures are on the Brighton Le Sands page.

The Greenway to Iron Cove: I am no fan of this trail but here is information on the link from Iron Cove to Cook River A track (not so safe) from the airport to the city
