High Point

Start with a climb up the first section of our Green Loop "Shack track" followed by a long steady climb up "Highway to Hill" which uses sections of old Mining race, Once you reach the top, have a breather then get set for fantastic 7km descent down Blackwood Boulevard and Digger's Decline before returning to base with a traverse along "Minty Badger" which follows another old Mining Race.

Long grass whacked for a short way in from the last crossing of Nine Acre Track. Shortcut added to remove steep loop just prior to the last crossing of Nine Acre Track, entrance is marked with orange flagging tape. Give it a try and see if it works.
