The path from the information centre is initially flat with a hard bitumen surface. There is a short, 20 metre section that is steep with a gradient of approximately gradient of 1 in 7. Once past that section the path remains at less than a 1 in 14 gradient right through to the log cabin visual display building.

Path to Visual Display Centre 

The entry to this building is wide and the left hand room provides good access. The aisle down beside the seating is wide and there is an area at the front for wheelchair visitors. The paths immediately around the building are flat hard packed fine gravel.

From the log cabin visual display building there is a choice to return back the same way or to take the sealed path to the gallery and upper sculptures. The path leading to the upper road has sections with a gradient of 1 in 4.

Before the main road is a path off to the left accessing the sculptures "Brute" and "Long Beard". This path is also sealed and the gradients are less than 1 in 14.
