Rural Hill to Khyber Pass
Approximate distance: 2.5 miles
At Rural Hill the Trail begins again, after a detour either around or through Hamilton. What is now Trimingham Road was the route the old railway took out of Hamilton, and when you reach Middle Road a right turn brings you to the start of the next Trail section.
The Trail soon ducks under Middle Road through the railway’s longest tunnel, continuing past Elbow Beach station and passing close to Paget Marsh Nature Reserve. The route continues through the middle of Paget, running alongside Warwick Pond just before reaching Khyber Pass.
