Spring Creek, Lake Kerferd and Red Hill. Sunday, December 18.

The was a good summer walk, and 20 club members, plus our regular canine friend Ted, walked the 12kms in lovely conditions.

The route was predominantly on an unsealed vehicle access track, with a section of foot track. This was alongside Silver Creek, passing old mine shafts as we walked through mixed forest, with introduced understory species.

Improvements by Beechworth community members along newly planted wetlands impressed our crew.

On the way, we encountered two koalas, and morning tea was held at Lake Kerferd.

A scramble over the dam wall followed this break, with about 50m to traverse where there was no track, so as to get to the start of the Red Hill Track.

From Red Hill, we then returned to Beechworth for a delightful lakeside picnic beside Lake Sambell.
