Golden Mountain Walk
Porcupine Ridge Road – Vaughan Springs 11 km
This section passes through historic goldfields that are only accessible on this walk. It includes a number of often dry gullies. Water must be carried in this area because it isn’t guaranteed to be available or potable, even at Vaughan on the Loddon River.
There is no permanent settlement at all once you head north of Mt Franklin. It is a great area for experiencing a quiet, challenging walk through a forested, uninhabited but once thriving mining area.
