We will start by walking the fire trail around the bottom of Galore Hill up to The Saddle where there is a small hill covered in native pines with hopefully many orchids in flower and lots of echidnas, wallabies and roos. The views of the surrounding farmlands from this hill are pretty speccy at this time of the year if the canola is flowering. We will also pass an arboretum of grevilleas that was established in the late 1900’s. Lunch will be had at The Saddle Picnic Area. Afterwards we will walk the Mad Dog Morgan Cave Loop Trail (where possibly peregrine falcons could be nesting) to the summit and climb the Lookout Tower to obtain a 360degree view of the surrounding countryside. A short car shuttle will be needed. Approx 12km

Participants will need to acknowledge and abide by the clubs COVID 19 safety procedures and guidelines, that apply to this walk and will be outlined on booking.

Then on the way back to Albury, we will stop at Morgans Lookout, which was the hiding spot that he used to evade the police for so long.
