Masons Falls Circuit Walk

This is a 14km circuit walk jointly lead with Lynda Maddison and jointly run with Koonung Bushwalking Club.  We commence at the Blackwood Car Park at 8.45 am for a 9.00 start (on the Masons Falls Road, turn right immediately as you pass through the gates of the Masons Falls National Park).  The hike commences at this point (no toilets available) and follows a pretty path, Mt Sugarloaf Ridge Track, although the views of Mt Sugarloaf are not overwhelming, the track is pretty.  We then backtrack slightly to pickup Running Creek Track with a long downhill gradient (poles recommended particularly if wet), with morning tea on the descent.  We then follow Running Creek at the bottom through ferny nooks (look out for lyrebirds we saw 2 on the recce).  We then do the uphill track out of the valley (undulating and steep gradual ascent) to the Masons Falls Lookout. Lunch in the picnic area (with toilets) before a pretty walk back to the cars via Goodenia and Boundary Tracks.
