This walk was fantastic and what made it great is the varied terrain. From steep ascents and decent to tar seal this walk had it all.
Distance: approx 19kms (Walks 6 to 9 – 10.3km and Walks 10 to 14 – 8.7km)
Time: 6:30 – 7 hours
Grade: Easy, Medium, Hard
Start: Camels Hump, Mt Macedon Tea Rooms, Hotel in Macedon township
We started at the Camels Hump and decided to walk anti-clockwise. Looking at the map it seemed like it was quite steep after Memorial Cross, along with days of rain decided I would prefer to go down rather than up.
Overall the paths were generally wide and flat.
There was so much evidence of wombats, but of course didn’t see any.
Not sure if you can see the cross in the distance, but from Mt Towrong surprised to see the distance we’d walked. You follow the ridge line till you get to the road follow the road and cross to the other side of the ranges.
Trialled coconut water as a natural electrolyte replacement and worked well. This walk was a lot of tree cover so doing the loop in summer just might be okay.
