Meet at Mt Buffalo Park entrance at 9.30am. Please consider car pooling from Albury Wodonga.

This trip will be a day exploring the trails around Mt Buffalo. Distance of approximately 10km depending on the group.

Weather permitting I plan to have lunch somewhere out on the trail so pack something to eat, a warm drink and something to sit on.

The club has 3 sets of snowshoes for members to borrow.

 

Please check what to bring on the day. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Suitable for anyone wanting to try snow shoeing.
