The River-Forest Track can begin either at the road bridge on Main Street near the entrance to the town or at the corner of Maxwell Street and Sandy Point Road. A third shorter segment can be taken in either direction at the Elizabeth Street entry point. This area is now a river or riparian reserve. In Tasmania, these reserves were created to provide public access to water courses and protect native flora.
The River-Forest Track was completed in July 2011, a 4.7 km track to link the existing History-Foreshore and Wildflower Reserve tracks. This completed the 11 km loop to encircle the town of Bridport. The track project was built as part of a training scheme by 30 trainees.
