You will walk through tall eucalypt forests and if you look carefully will see evidence of past mining activity and tunnelling.
There are many disused mine shafts on the track which are covered with wire mesh others are not, so stay on the designated trail. Keep a look out for koalas, wombats and wallabies as you walk along. When you reach Lake Kerferd you can fish for Redfin and Golden Perch. As Lake Kerferd is Beechworth’s water supply there is no swimming or boating.
