Starting at Eight Mile Flat we follow the high track, with spectacular views of the Howqua River and Valley, toward Ritchie’s hut, about six kilometers away. At the junction of the high track and low track, which goes back to the Eight Mile via numerous river crossings, we decide to go on to the hut or return to the flat.
Be prepared to get your footwear wet on the return journey. Walking poles are of great assistance during the crossings.
Leader: Terry Sides; 0411 470 257 Meet at the Centre CP at 7.45am for 8am departure.
