White Box Track, Chiltern-Mount Pilot National Park : August 27

Starting out from the Honeysuckle Picnic ground, this was an 8.5km loop walk, and was an easy three hour ramble through the box-ironbark forests along a foot track.

Excellent signage helped us find our way where vehicular tracks were encountered, and there were some small hills and dips to negotiate, but nothing too strenuous.

We saw lots of birds in the forest canopy, and we noted strong regrowth in the western section of the forest, the section most heavily impacted by the Indigo Valley Fire of 2016.

Altogether, a very pleasant morning walk, followed by a picnic back at the cars, and then a short drive to Mount Pilot, and a short walk to the summit, for 360o views.

It was a bit too early for the wildflowers, and maybe a future walk in this area could include the Yeddonbah Rock Art site.
