Mount Wall

Craigieburn Forest Park

A circuit from the Broken River locked gate up onto the Craigieburn Range, along to Mount Wall, and down. Points of note:

1) I really have to stop putting my phone in airplane mode when using it as a GPS. Sadly, half the circuit is missing.

2) My route down off Mount Wall was not ideal, with a lot of scrambling through steep, tangled forest. I'm not sure if there's a better one -- perhaps dropping quickly into Wall Creek. The creek near Broken River had some pretty waterfalls.

3) Over Broken River, I wasn't watching the sun or the GPS and truly failed at keeping a line. I actually came upon the river I had just crossed, which was embarrassing.
