Douglas Walk, a 10 minute drive from Ribbonwood, walking over glacial landforms formed between 1600 AD and 1750 AD by glacial advances and retreats.

I love this walk - jogging or walking the 4 kms through a succession of vegetation types, each representing a different stage of re growth behind retreating ice and different soil types. It also takes me past Peters Pool, a reflective kettle lake, and the historic Douglas Bridge.
Great glimpses of the mountains through the beautiful forest
