Salvation Picnic Area (about 5 m back from the start).
The Salvation Picnic Area is beside West Head Rd in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, about 3.6km north of the intersection of West Head Rd and General San Martin Dr. The picnic area has three picnic benches and a car park. There are no other facilities. This is a convenient point to start/finish the nearby Salvation Loop, Wallaroo and Yeomans walks.
After another 90 m find the "Salvation Loop hanging swamp" (30 m on your left).
The Salvation Loop hanging swamp is enclosed within the Salvation Loop Track, off West Head Rd in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, about 3.6km north of the intersection of West Head Rd and General San Martin Dr. This area of hanging swamp (swamp formed in a depression on high ground, usually near a cliff) and wet heathland is dificult to see from the surrounding Salvation Loop track due to the drier, tall, dense heath vegetation surrounding it. It may, however, reward the patient, or lucky, observer with the plant and animal life associated with this habitat type, such as reeds and frogs.
After another 215 m (at the intersection of Salvation Track & West Head Road) turn left, to head along Salvation Track (a vehicle track).
The starting point of an optional sidetrip. An optional side trip to the rocky outcrop at end of the track. To start this optional side trip turn sharp right here. On returning from this side trip continue straight when you get back to this intersection. Details below.
After another 15 m come to "Yeomans Track view".
The Yeomans Track view is at the end of Yeomans Track off the Salvation Loop track and West Head Rd in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. This viewpoint is an informal, unfenced lookout from a rock outcrop. You get limited views, through the trees, over parts of Cowan Waters, including Yeomans Bay.

After another 65 m come to "Yeomans rock outcrop".
The Yeomans rock outcrop is at the end of Yeomans Track off the Salvation Loop track and West Head Rd in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. The unfenced and unmarked area has some interesting textures in the rock and nice views of Cowan Waters, making it a good place to have lunch and explore, at the end of Yeomans Track.
