Walking Since 1939

Yankee Creek Loop

Upcoming

 

Walk Description

Distance: 8.5 kms

Come and explore one of the lesser-known tributaries of the Lerderderg River on this hike. The advertised distance may be short but the going will often be slow on this hike with a lot of the trail unmarked. The reward is you will get to see a pretty, relatively unknown area and plenty of mining relics.
