Riparian Walk #4 – County Creek, Ruffy – Pre event description

Another month, another beautiful walk, with this being the 4th in this series of famous SRCMN Riparian walks.

Ruffy is proving to be a bounty of new and exciting waterways to discover, and we’ll explore the beautiful County Creek this time.

The aim of these walks is to become better acquainted with our local waterways, and record some of their standout features along the way.

This walk is long (7km) and of moderate difficulty with some steep scrambles over loose, gravelly terrain. Hiking experience isn’t necessary, but an average level of fitness and mobility will be required. Difficulty will increase drastically if wet weather precedes it, or if it’s hot.

We’ll meet at the Ruffy CFA shed before driving out to the starting point at the bridge on Longwood-Ruffy Rd. From there, we’ll descend down the County Creek and it’s gorges, before taking a shortcut through paddocks back to the starting point (YAY! no car shuffle).

Please note, as we’ll be traversing private property, no dogs or other pets will be allowed.

Time/Date: 8:45am to 1pm, Saturday the 27th of April, 2019

Meeting Location: Ruffy CFA Shed – 1 Nolans Rd, Ruffy VIC 3666

Finishing Location: Longwood-Ruffy Rd
