Loggers Lane to Wenhams, and return : May 10

The starting point for today’s adventure was at the corner of Wangandery Road and Gerritts Road, and the distance to be covered was about 12 kilometres. The day provided mostly blue skies, albeit a bit cloudy at times.

Having met at Rotary Park at 9am, the nine of us (including Elaine, a welcome visitor) set off walking at about 9.30, and had morning tea at the junction of Loggers Lane and Stypandra Track. We then continued towards Taylors Track. On the way we enjoyed nice views of the Ovens River Flood Plain, and admired the many colonies of grass-trees.

Moving on, we turned north at an un-named single-file track that provides a very scenic loop around to Taylors Track. In this section we enjoyed some nice rocky scenery, and some more views (including Wangaratta, and the distant high country). We then made a gradual descent to Wenhams Camp, where lunch was enjoyed sat at the picnic tables.

After a leisurely lunch, we started the journey back to the start, taking a myriad number of single-file tracks to the north. These tracks took us through some amazing stands of spur-wing wattles, and grass-trees, and eventually back to our vehicles.

This completed a five hour journey, and our great day was completed by the traditional hot drink and biscuits. The walk is graded as moderate, and we also rated it as possibly the best walk in the Warby Ranges.
