Please abide by any State or Federal COVID-19 health requirements.

Meet at the turn out on Kaitlers Road, Lavington; near the intersection with Wagga Road (old highway) and opposite Blacklocks Motors at 9.30am.

A short walk along the Wagga Rd walking trail then onto a dirt track that will take us to the top of One Tree (Red Light) Hill. There will be a short (150m) but very steep (25-30 degrees) section towards the top. Morning tea here at the top. No cafe here sorry, BYO.

Then we head down the tower service road and break for lunch at the lake. Again, no cafe here, so BYO.

We then turn back by heading straight up the short way to the top, and back down towards Wagga Road.

At the bottom, a gentle stroll via Ettamogah Rise estate and the Wagga Road walking trail back to the cars.

Dogs OK but there could be kangaroos.

Any late cancellations please call me on 0456 100 183.
