Middle Creek Valley: Sunday, 12th August

For the Middle Creek Valley and Ridge Top Walk, near Greta South, last Sunday, we had 20 participants for a great walk that included the “Kelly Cave”.

This was a short walk of approximately 10 kilometres, mostly in the bush and off track through private land.

It was a fine day but cold, with temperature averaging about 11 degrees.

After making our way to an overhanging cave, which was possibly used by the Kelly Gang back in the late 1870’s, we had a long climb to the top of the ridge, where we had morning tea with great views to the Middle Creek and Ryan’s Creek valleys.

From here, we continued further to a gently sloping area for lunch, and then followed another track before a steep descent back into the valley.

As an added bonus, our guest leader, and local expert, Adrian educated us with some good basic bush and navigation skills during the walk.
