- Key risks and hazards: River crossing. Road walk
Starting at Clover Dam, we start with a river crossing then walk uphill on a 4WD track for about 3kms. If the river is too high to cross , as happened last year, we will walk to the end of the track and half way along the Tramway before returning the same way.
Hopefully the river can be crossed, and we will head uphill for about an hour , before reaching the Tramway. After morning tea we walk along the Tramway, which is flat, running alongside the water race . There is often interesting bits and pieces of old equipment along here, and also several small creeks feeding into the aqueduct .
There are two trestle bridges that will require us to scramble down and up the other side. Where the Tramway finishes we walk on a 4WD track back to the Bogong High Plains road. It is about 1.3kms back to the cars along this road ,but we will stop at the Clover Arboretum to view the village remnants and plants.
This is not a long walk , total 11kms, and it is mostly easy, but it does have a few ups and downs and short scrambles.
This is a good walk for new members who are uncertain of their fitness, as there is only a few hills, and we have plenty of time.
Please do not phone before Monday 1st August to book in.
