This track is an extension to the north of the Nail Can Hill Trail from Centaur Rd Lavington to the Jindera Gap on the Urana Road. It becomes Bakes Trail. It is a very good walk that offers fantastic views to the Victorian Alps. Starting from the Jindera Gap end we climb to the Hamilton Trig station along Bakes Trail. After a half way coffee break we then have an easy climb down and be fortunate enough to view the Albury tip.

Meet at the top of the Jindera Gap on Urana Rd. At the top take a left hand turn into Jelbart Rd and find a park off the road immediately on the left near where the track starts. 

Carpooling will be organised to Centaur Rd there.

No toilets are on this walk.

dogs OK ; but remember as this is a car pooling event please respect the cars of fellow walkers.

Bring hat, water and a morning tea snack. Coffee and cake at Red Brik Cafe, Lavington for those interested.
