Once over Waverley Rd there are two ways past the railway line: a crossing at the north end of Collins St, from which it is usually easy to get down to the path except there was a construction site in the way last time I tried (a while ago); or via Margot - Batesford - Power - Winbirra, which I would follow all the way to the Gardiners Creek crossing point on High St Rd. Not sure what Winbirra Pde is like to ride in busy traffic but Power Ave is OK.
Waverley Rd can be frustrating to cross in heavy traffic, in which case an alternative is to take the path on the north side of the freeway between Atkinson St and Kierens Way, from where there is a pedestrian crossing to Power Ave (this adds about 1 km).
Or another somewhat slower alternative is to take the Scotchmans Creek trail to its Waverley Rd crossing, then follow the Waverley Rail Trail (via Golfers Dr and Argyll St) back over Warrigal Rd to opposite the top end of Collins St. Adds about 1.5 km vs the most direct route.
