I’ve done this walk a couple of times now, a very simple yet very enjoyable walk.
Getting there: Travelling away from the town centre of Noojee down Loch Valley Rd, you cross a bridge over a river, then you want to turn left into a picnic area. If you park your car near the small trestle bridge, look on the riverbank back towards the road and you will find a sign & a path for the ‘Ralph Cornwall Tramway Walk’.
The walk starts across the road and you will see some old machinery and a big log with ‘The Loch Valley Walk’ written on it. If you follow the path you will then come across a wooden gate which you have to walk through.
As you start your walk it does start next to a depot building but you soon leave all that behind and not long after starting you are surrounded by tall trees and lush ferns. As you meander along the track you will see the river throughout your walk and also get some great views of the countryside.
It is an easy walk with only a couple of very slight gentle hills, but it is mostly flat. It took us about 30 mins to reach the end of the track and a great surprise to find a lovely little picnic area right next to the river. The perfect place to take a picnic lunch, which is what we did the last time we walked this track. Once you’re finished at the picnic spot make your way back on the same path.
This was a very surprising walk, much nicer than I expected. The only bad thing I would have to say is there were some signs throughout but nothing on them, it would have been nice to read some more information about the place. A very beautiful walk and the little picnic area by the river is fantastic.
** Note **
When we completed this walk on the 15-9-19 there was a huge tree down over the track, just be aware you may have to climb up and around it.
