My third club walk in to this little-known but spectacular part of Chiltern Mt Pilot National Park....Clear Creek runs from the plateau between Chiltern and Eldorado, over a series of nice waterfalls and out onto the plains at Byawatha. After organising a car-shuttle, we will walk a loop visiting all the falls (hopefully with water in them!) and lunch at the lookout with amazing views.

Meet at 9am at the Old Cemetery Rd crossing on the Hume Hwy, 3km beyond the Chiltern-Beechworth overpass - turn left (S) into Old Cemetery Rd. Normal daywalk stuff required, good boots as rocks may be slippery! Note that there will be a fairly steep descent and climb after lunch. Although we may walk in the opposite direction to the map below, and have the steep bit before lunch!

GRADE 3

Suitable for most ages and fitness levels. Some bushwalking experience recommended. Track may have short steep hill sections, a rough surface and many steps.
