West Gosford Walk

A 4.9km return walk along Fagans Bay at West Gosford.
West Gosford walk
A walk along Fagans Bay at West Gosford from Yallambee Avenue to Goodaywang Reserve. This is part of the Gosford cycle/walking path and wanders along the foreshore with some views of the bay through the mangroves and tall trees that line the path. Some of the path is quite shady which is pleasant in warmer weather.

There is a popular children's playground just before the bridge over Coorumbine Creek at the end of Uratta Street with climbing equipment, swings, slippery dip, picnic tables and seats.
The path is well kept and the grass neatly mown. An occasional picnic table along the path provides a spot for a drink and a bite to eat.

On the way back just after the seat in the above picture close to the start of the path, the path forks and the right path takes you back past the mangroves to the car while the left path goes to the local West Gosford shops where there is a cafe (Michel's Patisserie) for coffee near Coles Supermarket.
