Starting from the Jimmy Creek Campground, Mafeking, this trail takes you to Griffin Picnic Area, visiting Wannon Crossing Campground and passing through the open grasslands along the way. This is the fifth of the sixth segments of the Grampians Peaks Trail. You can traverse the open grassland areas along with river flats that welcome you towards the end of the trail, after you walk through the towering forest. There are some steep parts as you get deeper into the forest, but the scenery at the end is worth it for many. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
