The Hackett

The Hacket Track follows alongside the beautiful Hacket River up to the foothills of the Mount Richmond Forest Park.

The trip starts with a 40minute scenic drive out to Richmond and then up the Aniseed Valley to the Hacket picnic area The ride takes us up the true left of the river through a variety of vegetation from the open stunted scrub of the mineral belt to the honey dew laden native beach and some exotic fir and pines. Stop to admire the views or spot the trout rising in the river. Eventually we get up to the Hacket Hut where we stop for lunch (provided) before returning the way we came. For the more able rider we are able to extend the ride a bit with an extra climb over the Hacket saddle and a play in the fir trees on the way back down. Bring your swimmers for a cool refreshing dip afterward at the swimming hole.
