Starting at  Clover Dam, we walk uphill on a 4WD track for about 3kms. We then 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 . We may explore one of these, where I know there is a small waterfall, and I also need to look for a lost drink bottle !

There are two trestle bridges that will require us to scramble down and up the sides. 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.
