There is a faint junction off the Towlers Bay Trail at this point heading south down to a lookout known as Birnie Lookout that offers exceptional views over Pittwater. If you use the EOTopo map you'll find this marker at the track junction, but there's also a discreet cairn on the side of the firetrail but its easy to miss due to the low shrubs covering the entrance. It is narrow and a bit overgrown but fairly easy to follow. You only need to go a few hundred metres and you'll get the first view over Pittwater. From there, if you're lucky you may spot some rock cairns and white tape marking the track as it descends through the low scrub. Keep going until you find the picnic bench on a rock jutting out with the most magnificent view over Pittwater.
