The following is an excerpt from “Walking  and Trails in Harrietville”

Washington Creek via Bon Accord Track

“8km, 3hrs return  Formed track with hills and some obstacles. Sign posted. Starting at the end of Bon Accord Track. Though this walk is only recommended for experienced walkers, the first section of this track is a fantastic walk on its own. The track will guide you along the east branch of the Ovens River to the confluence of Washington Creek. Return the way you came.”

I have walked it before and it has a steady grade down and back up but not steep. We would like to meet at Pioneer Park at 9:30 am and walk down to Washington creek for an early lunch. On the way back we will turn left before the Feathertop Chalet and follow the road at Harrietville, so we can check the Museum  before going  to the coffee shop. All up I estimate the walk to be around 12 km max.  And would rate it Grade 2 at the most  because of the ups and downs.

Call me Katia Bertazzo   on  0401 408 853  by Sat morning May 21th as I will be in Harrietville and out of range at times.

or  Tarnia Gatzka on  0419 126 282  up to Sunday morning May 22nd. If you are a late minute person please at least let us know that you are coming so we don’t leave without you 😉
