This walk is rescheduled from July but note that the description has changed. The HCRT follows the route of the old Wodonga to Cudgewa railway line and is being restored in stages. Shelley was the highest railway station in Victoria so our walk will be mainly downhill. The route veers away from the main road to wind through forest and there are some spectacular trestle bridges. We’ll from Shelley down to where the HCRT crosses the road (approx. 12 km) and possibly continue on to see the recently restored Boggy Creek bridge before returning to wherever we left the care, probably Koetong Pub.  All up about 15 km, with a short car shuffle required.
