“Easy Walks” are aimed at maintaining fitness by introducing people to bushwalking, and giving people who have walked in the past the opportunity to continue on shorter and easier tracks. It is also a very social occasion, as we normally have morning tea on arrival at the start of the walk, much chatter as we walk, and lunch either on the track or on return to the cars, depending on the length of the track. Most walks are about 4km, although we sometimes go further if it is fairly level, and we try to pick areas that do not require too much climbing. We leave the Centre car park (tennis courts) at 10.00am. on the first Wednesday of the month but do not start the walks till April due to the summer heat. The last walk of the year is in November, as we find it gets too busy nearing Christmas. Contact Vaughan Cowan on 5762 1980 prior to each walk, or for any enquiries.
About Easy Walks
Easy Walks are aimed at maintaining fitness by introducing people to Bushwalking and giving previous bushwalkers the opportunity to continue on shorter and easier tracks. Walks will be approximately 5 kms without a lot of climbing, within an hour’s drive of Benalla. Participants will require sturdy shoes & able to carry a backpack containing snack, lunch, adequate water, waterproof jacket & personal items. Members will be required to notify the convenors of attendance 3 days prior to the walk to enable carpooling, travel costs, and other arrangements. .
Easy Walks will be held on the first Wednesday of each month from April to November and leave from the carpark behind the Senior Complex (U3A), Fawckner Drive at 10 am or as determined by the convenors
