We will meet at Springwood Train Station and slowly descend the valley to the Glenbrook Creek passing through the deep bushland full of turpentine trees.  A stop for morning tea will be had at Glenbrook Creek.  After following the creek for a few kilometres, we then start the steep ascent to Martins Lookout.  The view out over the valley is worth the climb and makes a great spot for lunch.  A quick descent down before rejoining the Sassafras track slowly climbing back up to Springwood station.  A lovely stretch of track passing several waterfalls crossing the creek numerous times.
