Meet at 8.00am at Belvoir Dog Park, Reuss St Wodonga. We'll walk around Sumsions Garden then back along the stock route, along the Hume Freeway toward the disused railway bridges  and alongside the new railway line. From there we continue to Harris Road, back toward the Albury/Wodonga bike path. Passing Gypsy Gardens  and along stock route again toward Belvoir Park.

An easy lovely walk, mostly on rough and dirt roads/tracks, with intermittent sealed paths. We walk through tree lined roads which makes up for the noise of the freeway close by. Dogs are welcome, however there will be certain sections where they will need to be on lead. I would suggest poles due to possible long grass in a small section and the surfaces was be effected from the recent flooding

We will not stop on the way for a coffee break, so no need to carry thermos and treats (yes, I'm trying to look after all our waistlines ) We will have our obligatory coffee and cake, possibly at La Maison's

GRADE 2

No bushwalking experience required. The track has a hardened or compacted surface that may have a gentle hill section or sections and occasional steps.
