This walk starts at Eltham Railway Station and follows the Diamond Creek to Eltham Lower Park. As we continue walking, we cross over the Yarra River and follow the Main Yarra Trail to Petty's Orchard where we will stop for a delicious morning tea at the cafe. After this stop, we'll about turn and retrace our steps as we return to Eltham. For those who feel that they have walked off their morning tea and wish to stay on for lunch, a cafe in Eltham will be chosen nearer to the time. The tracks may be muddy so wear your boots (poles if you wish).

The train leaves Flinders Street Station (Hurstbridge platform 1) 8.10 am arriviing at Eltham at 9.12 am where the leader wil meet you.

Ruth's Gully Circuit is a loop track that follows a network of scenic trails through sections of Wombat and Lerderderg parks adjacent to the Ruth's Gully Reference Area. The track is around 17Km, with some short sections of very steep inclines and descents. The total elevation (uphill sections added together) is around 500m, with the same degree of descent. The track follows some narrow, well marked trails, some sections of four wheel drive tracks, some short 'off track' sections and some sections following old gold mining water races. It has an Australian Walking Track Grade of '4', although this reflects the more challenging sections, rather than being indicative of the whole track. There are several interesting relics of gold mining, including an extended section of track along an old water race, old mine shafts and a tunnel built to redirect the Lerderderg river. Several sections of the track are clay, which can be very slippery when wet. At times, the narrow track winds along the side of very steep drop offs to the gully below, so it has some challenging elements, and requires a good level of fitness to enjoy. Poles are very useful. 

The Blackwood picnic ground at the start and end of the walk has a toilet, and two mineral springs for refreshment before and after the walk (!) We will start relatively early, and depending on weather may adjust the track plan if it is very wet and slippery to avoid one particularly steep drop off section. 

If you love the rugged Lerderderg gullys, you may enjoy this walk.
