Lerderderg south walk

Postby Hikrazy » Mon 05 Jul, 2021 11:12 am

Hello all,

Hiked the south walk at Lerderderg SP.
The track condition is absolutely terrible.
With the severity of the wind last month, every tree that could possibly blow over, has.
Also there are a couple of landslides that have wiped out the track in sections.
What usually takes 1.5-2 hours, took me 3+ hours.
The only reason I pushed through was because it was the last section of my circuit.
They need to either close the track or rebuild.

Interesting!. Can you define which parts specifically you are referring to as I am looking at doing some walks in the south end of LG over the next few weeks.

Basically from 300m south of O'Brien's crossing to 500m north of Spanish onion intersection.
If you have seen the landslide that has been there for the last 4 months then times it by 4 plus never ending fallen trees.
I don't mind obstacles but when on steep gullies, then it can be dangerous.
