Lerderderg Track Upgrade Completed
The last link for the Lerderderg Track, the trailhead panel at the PepperTree Reserve in Bacchus Marsh, is in place (pic attached). You can see the first route marker post for the PepperTree walk in the background, which follows the Werribee River and doubles as the Great Dividing Trail Network’s northern entry point.
Great Dividing Trail Association president Gib Wettenhall extends thanks to all those who contributed to the 87km long track upgrade – in particular, Forest Fire Management, Parks Vic offices at Creswick and Bacchus Marsh, and the two shires en route – Hepburn and Moorabool. All these land managers contributed funds and material resources for the reposting and new trailhead signage at Daylesford, Blackwood and Bacchus Marsh.
With the arrival of true spring, the track is now ready for walkers and bike riders. The 3rd edition of the Lerderderg Track map produced by the Great Dividing Trail Assoc can be purchased from the GDTN website – www.gdt.org.au/shop
We plan to officially launch the upgraded Lerderderg Track in what will hopefully prove a COVID-free autumn in 2021.
