Walking Since 1939

Werribee River / Mt Hope circuit


Walk Description

Please join me on a summer stroll through the Werribee River and Mt Hope Circuit.

We will be setting off from a pre-determined location near Ballan at 9am. Approved participants will be emailed the location and directions near the event start date.

From here we visit the Weribee river and Mt Hope around a circuit made up of 4WD tracks, single trail and off track sections in open bushland.

I have not explored the area yet, but am familiar with the terrain in Wombat State Forest and have a good circuit in mind. This walk will be exploratory.

It will be about 16 or so Kays all up.

Please email me directly with any questions or if you need more information about the difficulty of this walk (use the Enquiry facility below).
I would rate it a 3 – Medium walk, due to decent distance and varying small hills.

This walk will not be advertised on Meetup, it’s YHA website only.

Car pooling can be initiated by filling out the car pooling details when you register. I will then do my very best to connect drivers with riders via email well before the event.
