I noticed what i think is a bushwalking track near the headwaters of the Yatala Creek at this location while looking around the area using Google maps in satellite mode.. https://goo.gl/maps/DbmJBfy9tNvu4h1A9
seems to pass through the following points:https://goo.gl/maps/2KCNqVAvcbxXGWH3Ahttps://goo.gl/maps/ZkZkQv4Kw9iu2NLt6 https://goo.gl/maps/WLXaHV82mMbxAsLs7

I asked my grandmother (90yo, former resident of Hornsby when it was dirt roads and farms)
Supposedly this is a track that leads down to Shark Rock Point and was used by Bass fishermen.
I somehow doubt this as I'm fairly certain Bass are a freshwater fish and her memory overall isn't super amazing these days.
Still, if you do go investigate and the trail seems to be heading that direction, that might be where it ends up.
If you do decide to go there, be careful, I can't see an access point that doesn't involve jaywalking across the motorway. I know people do to get to Jerusalem Bay more quickly, but I've never liked the idea.
Speaking of which, if you haven't been to that area before, be prepared for motorway noise...

from Berowra rail station, head east over the M1 (F3) Freeway ped bridge, immediately turn left. the track to the left is noticeable on your left as you commence to head down to Waratah and Apple Tree bays.
wanted to head on out along Shark Rock Ridge several years ago, but never did. Now I'm too old !
