The path starts at Hughesdale railway station. Here the path changes from the north side to south side of the railway line at Poath Road. 300 m along the Rosstown Rail Trail leads of to the right (south west). A short on road section at Carlisle Crescent delivers you to Oakleigh station. Easy to get lost here - use the station underpass to rejoin the path on the north side of the rail line. The trail continues to Centre Road, with one more crossings of the train line at Clayton Road.
