Mt Crawford to Pewsey Vale

Sun 27 May 2018

Walk name/location
Mt Crawford to Pewsey Vale
Walk grade
End-to-End 11

The trail has recently returned to the original route that climbs Mt Crawford. After descending via a forest track to Mount Rd it then makes its way up and over the pretty Wirra Wirra Peaks.

After leaving the forest another recent reroute takes you west along Tower Road and then north on Wirra Wirra Road past Corryton Park homestead. Quiet dirt roads and a tree studded road reserve complete the day.
