Description

Starting at the Riverside Bridge just out of Horsham the track follows the river North on the west side of the Wimmera River. There is the option of following the dirt vehicle access road or the single file pedestrian track closer to the river. Both tracks can become quite muddy during wet weather conditions. The jetties and picnic tables provide a great opportunity to enjoy a peaceful rest along the way.
