Reform Hill and the riverside at Myrtleford : April 8

On this “urban walk” Erin lead six club walkers including one “newie”, along a variety of delightful easy, to medium level, tracks near the town for about 11kms.

They started along several attractive treed avenues, before reaching Apex Park for morning tea, close to the Ovens River, and those high quality murals depicting river views, and local fauna and flora.

The group then ambled back beside the river to Rotary Park, where lunch was eaten.

After the break, the once heavily mined Reform Hill, to the east of the town, was climbed to the summit, where panoramic views of the Ovens Valley, and the surrounding hills were much appreciated.
