The trail passes through parts of a working Sheep farm so please do not bring dogs onto the trail. The walk is quite rocky and steep in places, so watch your step, and in the warmer months keep an eye out for snakes.
The trail, opened in 2020, was a project supported by the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority, Yorta Yorta National Aboriginal Corporation , Greater Shepparton City Council and the University of Melbourne (Dookie Campus) through funding from the Australian Government and Greater Shepparton City Council.
Please note there are no toilet or drinking facilities along the trail - the nearest public toilets are located in the township of Dookie (just over 2 kilometres to the north of the trail car park).
