Note that the Avonhead Gardens leg includes unmarked stretches between:

*  the leg sign at Mcleans Island and the entrance to Mcleans Grasslands Park on Mcleans Island Rd, and

* the entrance to Mcleans Grasslands Park on Conservators Rd and Avonhead Park.

We cannot mark the trail alongside these roads as there is no formed footpath, and this is considered a safety matter. The route that we currently intend to take when we can address this footpath issue is marked in dark green.
