This walk is POSTPONED because of uncertainty over Covid travel restrictions and ongoing rain making part of the walk very slippery.

We did two Bright hills in April, now it’s the turn of the good looking hills! There are several smallish hills around Mt Beauty and on this walk we will tackle two of them. We start by climbing Mt Beauty itself, a fairly gentle ascent through the forest with some views up to Mt Bogong and then down across the town. The exact route will be determined on the day from a few options. Then it’s off to the riverside park in town for lunch before heading to Tawonga South. The walk starts at the Junction Creek nature trail, a relatively new short walk that crosses Junction Creek on little log bridges many times. We also see an interesting relic of the 1950s (no, not the leader!). Then we climb up Vails Hill, which is a steady but not very steep climb, and from the top we loop round through a ferny gully back to the start.

All walks are on tracks with a couple of short scrambles. Each walk is about 5 or 6 km, and you can join us for one or both, just specify when booking. Grade is 2 for one walk or 3 for both.
