Stanley Forest : May 15th

The original venues for this event were to be Flagstaff Hills for a hard walk, and Stanley Forest for a medium walk; however, due to days of rain this week, and illness striking some walkers, it was decided to only do the Stanley Forest walk.

We met in Beechworth, and travelled via Lady Newton Drive to the Clarks Corner picnic area, west of Stanley. The walk began here, taking Rooneys Track and using forestry roads and several foot tracks for an eight kilometre loop.

Steep in parts, the forest was delightful after a few days of rain, and we were greeted with sun streaming through the foliage. A highlight of this walk was the many different fungi, probably a result of a wet summer.

After Pat’s usual lovely cuppa, we called in at Murmungee Lookout so as to enjoy the great valley view from here.
