Wednesday April 5th: Plain Creek Loop, Merrijig
Plain Creek is a tributary of the Delatite River, and in this walk of approx 8km we will go along its length until we reach the waterfall, turning and then making our way back in a loop to Carter’s Day Visitor area for a picnic lunch. Walking poles and comfortable shoes are recommended, although at present the track should be dry. Traversing an old logging area which is now State Forest, it is a gully track lined with ferns, some metal bridges to cross, and evidence of the area’s timber cutting history.
We will leave the Seniors’ carpark, Fawkner Drive, at 9am. Please confirm with Julie by text, email or phone message on 0407823031 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember a hat, drinks and a picnic lunch. Car sharing is usually available for a small contribution.
Our May walk will feature autumn leaves, either at Bright or Beechworth-watch this space for further details! As always, our walks can be impacted by weather extremes, so keep an eye on the newsletter and on emails in case of changes.
