Musk & Glenlyon
A Station, 2 Springs and a Store
A rough and ready map converted form a Cyclic Navigator event especially for Xmas 2012 visitors. However, it is fairly accurate.
From Musk Station (on Sunday you can take your bike on the train from Daylesford), you can visit Passing Clouds Winery, Istra Smallgoods, Daylesford Cidery and Leitches Creek mineral spring.
From the spring, you could ride through the large (177 x 5 & 10 acre blocks) yet hidden Wheatsheaf bush settlement. At the NE corner of the settlement (cnr Lightwood Drive and Sharpes Lane), you can choose the quicker and easier road route via Sharpes Lane into Glenlyon. Or you can head East up a track that crosses the incipient Loddon River then takes you via Henry’s Lane through the bush to a fast and longish descent to Glenlyon (look for the single track on the L just after you exit Henry’s Lane).
The Glenlyon General Store awaits you with coffee, drinks, food and maybe live music on a weekend. Glenlyon Back Rd W then S to Giacometti’s Lane is a fast alternative way (mostly tarmac) back to Musk or Daylesford.
