Walk Notice - Sassafras to Butterfiled Conservation Reserve, Sunday 15th April.

The Walk:

Walking along the Dandenong Ranges Tourist Track, we will follow the meandering paths of the Sassafras, Woori Yallock and Menzies Creeks.

We will walk through fern gullies and over ridges covered with stands of tall Eucalypts. The track will cross over bridges and boardwalks as well as a couple of main roads.

In places, the path is very narrow and nearly overgrown with grasses, so please wear long pants and shirt-sleeves to prevent scratches. The path may also be muddy in places and also prone to exposed tree roots.

The walk will commence from Sassafras and has been designed so it will be mostly downhill. The steep, up hill sections are avoided but there will be some undulations. There will be several picnic grounds along the way that may allow for a shorter walk for those who may be interested. Lunch will be at Baynes Reserve in Monbulk before continuing on to Butterfield Conservation Reserve near Emerald.

The Grade:

Moderate walking, 11 kilometres and car shuttle provided.

A walk through the heart of the Dandenongs!
