Wyaralong Dam - Saturday 14th The Long Walk is about 20 klms and the short is about 14 klms all up. Grading for the Long Walk is L 4 4 and the Short Walk is M 4 4. As previously I would expect the short walker’s vehicles to take the long walkers to the Western End to Start their walk and then return to the Dam Wall car park. Carpooling would be undertaken at Jubilee Park. The Long Walkers have a 5 klms warm-up walk along the edge of the Dam and then head up the ridge line. This track is a broad, clean 4WD track and has a total distance about 101/2 klms. The track affords good views along the length of the dam and the Scenic Rim. The track then diminishes to a Rabbit track and long grass for the next 21/2 klms. This section has a couple of steep rises in it before arriving at the top of Mt Joyce. Here we meet the short walkers for lunch. The Short Walkers will start at the Dam Car Park , travel down the road that leads across and below the outlet of the dam and onto the track that follows the dam‘s water edge. After about 3 klms they will take a good 4WD track off to the right that takes them up up up an Eastern Ridge to a bush track on the left. The bush track, total of about 1 klm, has a short steep section up to a fence where they turn right, follow the fence and meet the Long Walkers on the top for lunch. We all return the short way down the service track back to the Dam Wall. Brian
