GDTA Guided Walk – Sunday October 24
Upper Loddon River
Time: 9:15 for a 9:30 start
Distance: approximately 10k (4 hours total including breaks) Walk Leader: Tim Bach
DESCRIPTION: This walk will roughly follow Walk 16 – Rugged Upper Loddon from our new Central Highlands Walk and Ride Circuits booklet. Much of the walk is along faint animal tracks or overgrown vehicle tracks. It includes a mining ruin and follows a section of the Loddon Water Race constructed in the 1860s. The wildflowers are in bloom, the bush is lush and green and the river is quite high so it will be a lovely walk given some decent weather.

BRING: Walkers should bring their own first-aid kit and any required personal medications, water bottles, sun screen and personal hiking gear (sun glasses, walking sticks, small pack, etc). Long pants are recommended because there is tall grass along some of the tracks. Gaiters are a good safety precaution. Wear clothing appropriate for the predicted weather conditions on the day.
