Description

This walk can be an additional stretch to the path also following the Toomuc Valley Road on the south side of the Princes Highway (see “Pakenham 50 Year Rotary Walk” for details on this other walk).

This route path is a mix of off-road concrete path through trees and concrete and dirt footpaths next to the road.

Walkers can keep heading further north along the Toomuc Valley Road – if you are really keen (and fit!) you can keep going all the way to the ‘Cardinia Aquaduct Recreation Trail’: http://www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/Files/Environment/cardinia-aqueduct_trail_map_web.pdf.
