Coffee Cubicle – Mobile Café Hospitality Service at Manoora withdrawn during current increase in risk from COVID. Judy feels it is safer for customers, community and herself to not provide the services for now. There should be less use expected during Summer heat and Trail Closures Judy hopes that this does not impact too much on those still wishing to Walk/Cycle. She is hoping to return soon!

The Loop Trail is accessible from Watervale and is now part of the Clare Short Walks set.

Although the Loop Trail is only 900m walking it is steep towering over the area at 570m  the panorama unfolds before your eyes as you ascend, most people will appreciate this lofty lookout.

You can now enjoy the view even more, sit for a while on the bench seat and take in the view.

As this area has so much of a story to tell, interpretive signage has also been installed so you really have the opportunity to appreciate the historic significance of the area along with the view.
