Any misgivings we had about the weather were soon dispelled as the early morning mist cleared. A car shuffle meant that we were able to walk an 8 km loop of Wileman Track, to Back Creek Falls (reduced to a trickle).
How pleasant it was to walk through the tall timber after the recent rain, to smell the eucalyptus and discover clumps of dainty ferns and colourful fungi on the forest floor. Lunch at Camphora Camp Site was a welcome respite, before continuing along Wild Dog Creek Falls Track and Summit Track, relieved to find Wendy’s car patiently waiting.
Thank you, John and understudy Brian, for organising a great walk in the beautiful, nearby Mt. Samaria State Park.
The next Mid Week walk will be on Wednesday, 12 June, 2019. A circuit walk of about 9km starting on the eastern side of the range to Chick hill, along the top track then back down via Nason track and road to the start. Very pleasant with some stunning views across the Ovens Valley and up to the high country.
Meet at 9.15am for departure at 9.30am at the ‘The Centre’ Tennis Courts Barkley St Leader John Boehm 0428 254801.
