Meet at Bunnings Wodonga to carpool to Beechworth by 8am - please advise Leader if you want to carpool when you register.

If not carpooling drive to Beechworth turn into Peach Drive and then right at McConville Drive where we'll park near the toilets near Lake Sambell Caravan Park by 9am

Once everyone has arrived we'll drive  to Kerford Lake and from there walk up to the  Californian Redwood Plantation. These magnificent trees are part of the Mt Stanley Range and at least 100 years old, which have adapted to Australian climate.  A bit over 8kms, but we may "divert" a little, depending on the weather etc. No dogs this time due to walking on roads

Please contact  asap if not attending
