Forgotten Gold and Aboriginal Trails

Forgotten Gold and Aboriginal Trails
 
I like to take a leisurely three or four day bike trek through the mountains of the Murray river high country.
Some years back, while browsing through the “Man from Snowy River” Museum in Corryong, I stumbled upon an old map dated back to the late 1890s where I   discovered a couple of old tracks not shown on any current map publications. One was an old gold mining and cattlemen track and the other a track of sorts which follows the gradient of the old blacks track before European settlement.
 
I engaged a local Guide who knew of these tracks to outfit a Mountain Bike trek in the Snowy Mountains to explore these ancient trails.
To venture along these tracks is to enter into a forest wonderland.
All along its course, the cyclist is afforded fantastic views of both the mountains and rivers; in fact the tracks pass through some of the most spectacular country that this portion of Victoria, on the western slopes of the Snowy Mountains, has to   offer. It winds over high gaps, negotiates its way around precipitous bluffs, passes through tall timber and skirts above spectacular river gorges.
 
This journey, through dry and typically hard and tough Australian bush, is alternately punctuated by the adventurer being led down into cool fern gullies, the home of crystal streams whose banks are carpeted with hazel, blanket wood, musk, maiden hair and ancient tree fern. Some of the later “citizens” of the lush under story have obtained tremendous heights.
Being greeted by Kangaroo, Wallaby, Emus and Lyrebird was an unexpected delight to this adventurous traveller, and is truly a trek through the “forest primeval”. 
These remote trails are now accessible with the aid of a guide and can be arranged through Cycle Magic Treks adventure tours by contacting them on Phone No. (02) 6076 1832. Or email guide@cyclemagic.com.au

I am also a big lover of cycling in different tracks and of exploring new tracks for cycling. You have a memorable experience of cycling in an old track of Australia. I would love to experience which you have experienced before.

This is a great high resolution screen which you have shared for the users. Making a website is not an easy task but managing a good website is really a hard work. As far as this website is concerned, I am very happy.
