From Glenluce to Glenlyon via the Dry Diggings section of the Goldfields Track. Rising from 350m to 565m, the first 16km on dirt tracks and roads, the remaining 4km on tarseal.

A one way trip which could be extended by turning onto Up and Down Track off Green Gully Rd about the 14km mark.

Whoever drops you off at Helbe Track off the Drummond – Vaughan Springs Rd, can have a pleasant drive to Glenlyon and await you in comfort at the Glenlyon General Store or the Glenlyon Mineral Spring.

Truly a Goldfields Track

Gold fields that is. The gold and red spiky Daviesia ulicifolia, a.k.a. Gorse Bitter Pea,  (photo above) are the most prolific I have ever seen them. Due no doubt to much rain over winter and spring

Also more evident than I have ever seen before are the flowers at right. Riding the Up & Down Track / Ridge Rd circuit last weekend I came across 3 displays of this flower which were brilliant in the sun.
