Tracks and Trails
Council is in a staged process of developing a network of tracks and trails throughout our Municipality, subject to funding allocations. It is hoped that these tracks and trails foster and engage our community into greater recreational pursuits, an enhanced understanding of our cultural, historical and environmental values and builds awareness of the true enriching experiences available in our Municipality.
Dodges Ferry Carlton Loop
The Dodges Ferry – Carlton Loop will wind along Carlton River Road, down Carlton Beach Road, onto Park and Carlton Beach and then up Moomere Street to link two rapidly growing residential communities.
Approximately 7 km in length, the shared pathway represents much needed infrastructure to connect local communities, recreation assets, coastal reserves and community services, as well as to improve recreation opportunities and facilitate social interaction.
