Lerderderg State Park
This rugged trail invites us to meander alongside the picturesque Lerderderg River, to Graham Dam flanked by shingle beaches and crumbling sandstone cliffs (complete with mountain goats!). As we begin our rise towards the wattle dusted ridge, we rediscover the expansive panoramic views of the wild northern reaches of the gorge. Our journey guides us along tranquil billabongs, forests of resting Blue Gums, Grevilleas and Manna Gums, and invites us to bathe in the sounds of the river, feast on the ancient, and emerge refreshed, invigorated, and reconnected.

* Moderate hiking grade: General level walking on well-made trails. Some trails less maintained with uneven surfaces present (rocks, tree roots, loose shale, leaf litter etc). Hills and gorge edges with decent incline/decline. Slippery surfaces at times, particularly after rain. Some creek crossings (rock hopping) may be required after winter rains. A good level of walking fitness and sturdy footing required.
Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wilderness areas, the walking trails will of course be unpaved. As such, all hikes (including those categoried as 'easy') will have plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).
