4.2km (approx 90min). Easy with some steepish inclines.
Start cnr Ridge Rd and Euroa – Mansfield Rd, Gooram at the car park.
This is a genuine uninterrupted bird’s eye view of the surrounding landscapes. The vista below is of pretty country of high rolling hills and mountains. The view north extends to The Paps and beyond Cathedral Range. The view south includes Mt Wombat.
Ridge Rd traverses open grazing land, so views are uninterrupted to either side. On a clear day you can see a long way.
Park in the car park on the Euroa – Mansfield Rd opposite the entrance to Ridge Rd. Ridge Rd can be a bit of a challenge for vehicles, so it is best to start here.
Ridge Rd clearly terminates at the point you need to turn around and return. The track itself has hardly any traffic. It runs down the middle of a very broad road reserve. The track surface can be quite muddy when wet, but the parallel grassland makes a good alternative walking surface.
There are some modest inclines, but nothing serious.
