Cherokee CFA

Peninsula Bushwalking Club

Cherokee  area

Date: Saturday 17th February 2018

Grading: Medium

Distance of walk: 13.5 km

Meeting Time: 0900hrs at Cherokee CFA. The CFA is at the intersection of Gap Rd, Magpie Track and Tunnel Creek Rd. You will be coming up Gap Rd. Please note that if you are using Google maps or any other navigation device make sure you put in Cherokee CFA as your destination NOT just Cherokee. The CFA is the only building in Cherokee.

It is about 2 hours from Mornington. Take Calder Fwy, M79, then C708 exit towards New Gisborne. Then Station Rd to Shannons Rd, left onto Gap Rd. DO NOT go up Mountains Rd, this is a 4WD track. On arrival at the CFA please don’t park so as to block fire truck access.

This circuit walk from Cherokee, including Sanitorium Lake on the mountain tops, is one of diverse interest. The walk takes you through forest and farm areas with views across to Melbourne (on a good day) and then through densely forested mountain slopes. There are several steep hill climbs.

Bring usual hiking gear- walking sticks are a good idea. There is no water available so bring plenty of water for your needs.

If you are in any doubt about your ability to complete this hike please phone me to discuss.

Activity: Day Walk
Grade: Medium
