Mt Barker Rd to Belair

Sat 6 Apr 2024

Walk name/location
Mt Barker Rd to Belair
Walk grade
Trail Walker
Description

PLEASE NOTE. This is a point-to-point walk. We will use car-pooling to travel from the meeting point to the walk start point. We will also need to ferry those drivers back to their cars at walks end. While we will utilise the minimum number of vehicles to get the job done, all drivers need to be willing to participate if required. If car-pooling is not for you, then perhaps this is not the walk for you.

This walk covers 18k of the Yurrebilla Trail from Mt Barker Rd to Sheoak Rd Belair. A section of road walking to start with. The balance is on trails. Plenty of undulations to keep the walk interesting.

Contact me on 0412228631 if you need more information, but especially if your running late on the day.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
