Christies Loop, 5.2 km return. Shared walking, horse and mountain bike trail. Good fitness is required because the trail has a very steep ascent and a very steep descent.
|The starting point of Christies Loop. Only a few cow pats to negotiate!|
|The creek crossing was completely dry.|
|At the top of the ridge looking back at Glen Rock.|
|The pleasant part of the trail that wasn't part of the trail after all.|
|Rufous Whistler, female.|
The descent required a bit of concentration as it is quite steep but before long we were back walking along the creek bed. We saw a few cows on the walk but they seemed quite shy. In our absence a herd of cows had moved into the paddock, even though we tried not to disturb them, they quickly left when we showed up.
Blackfellow Creek Trail, 16 km return. Shared walking, horse and mountain bike trail.
