Much of the Trail is squeezed between the Eastern Freeway protective fence and the Kew Golf Club perimeter boundary fence. Care is needed to avoid cyclists! The Golf Club is very large, extending to the Yarra - has several small billabongs and a large lake (Simpson's Lake for irrigation. Glass Creek runs through the Course. Access to the Golf Course is nominally limited to golfers.
The huge amount of fast-flowing traffic on the Freeway generates vast noise and fumes.
