(Another) Lerderderg and Wombat Run EASY / MEDIUM

Wombat State Forest, VIC

See more trips

This will be a similar trip to my last trip that was done Sunday 22nd April so my missus can attend. Will take a few different tracks but most will be the same.. depending on the weather and the cars that turn up I might take more or less challanging tracks. Some tracks will be good challange for some but nothing will be too hard unless wet.

 

All big bogs will have relatively easy chicken tracks.

Planning another trip up Wombat / Lerderderg, if we go all the way we should finish up near Daylesford. Will mostly be some easy tracks, especially if tracks are dry and not wet. If wet they should be a bit of fun and some tracks might be medium. I will be trying out my new Patrol, so won't be tackling anything crazy.

I will be following some tracks from previous trips and towards the end if time permits we might visit a Hut, don't want to finish trip late and into the dark. Aiming to finish around 4.30PM
 
Please note that pin stripes and vehicle damage may occur please be prepared as Wombat is unpredictable.
 
If tracks are wet, there will be mud for sure. If mud is not really your thing, this might not be your kind of trip. I won't be tackling waist deep bog holes - but mud will be thrown around for sure.
 
Be prepared and read description properly so you won't be disappointed. This trip will be mostly easy if dry - should be fairly ok with good tyres and dry tracks. All goes to plan we will cross the whole wombat / lerderderg east to west through tracks, and if time permits we will hit a few kms of bitument to make it up to Daylesford where we will hit a few dirt roads to find La Fanchi Hut.. this is only if time permits.
 
Recommended Setup

 

  • 32 inch muddies or aggressive A/T (No HT)
  • 2 inch lift
  • WORKING WINCH is a must just in case.
  • Front and Rear recovery points
  • Extensive Recovery Kit in good condition (Snatch strap, extension strap, snatch block, dampener, shackles etc)
 
Meeting Point
 
10.30AM - Will be a bit of a late start (so please be on time) as Saturday night will be a late night for me.. so will need the extra ZZZ and everyone loves a bit of a sleep in on a Sunday (well I do)
 
 

 
As always everyone comes at their own risk. You are responsible for your vehicle, yourself and your passengers. I will not push anyone to do anything they are not comfortable with and a winch can come in handy (hence required) if something goes wrong. It is for your own safety. If you require any assistance on the tracks or a spot - just ask.
 
Trip will be cancelled if it's raining too much or weather turns to shit.
