Up - Derrinal to Heathcote

Trail section between Derrinal and Heathcote

Section Highlights:

The Trail crosses what was, during the time of the railway line, McIvor Road, now called Old Bendigo Road. It meets the rail bed immediately before a replacement steel bridge over Wallace Gully. The rail line crossed the highway at an angle in front of Kilmuir Estate entrance that can be seen across the highway.

The Trail continues up an incline, rounds a righthand bend, crosses Hills Road, and enters the One Eye Forest.
