The Walk in Detail

Baldry's Crossing - Greens Bush - Main Creek - Gwenmarlin Road Starting at Baldry's Crossing follow the Main Creek track where you will see nice views over farmland above a steep embankment (1). Continue along the main track and ignore other side circuit tracks on the right side of the track. Walk through the bush past a small creek & boardwalk (3) until you reach an open area (4). This was a bush airstrip for the Green family farm. At the other end of the airstrip is the site of the Green family farmhouse (2).You will see good views over the Main Creek valley and Bass Strait from here.  Walking further you will descend into a valley and come upon a grass tree Forest (5). Drop down until you cross Lightwood Creek and reach the track Junction. Turn to the right (West) and climb the hill to the Rogers Road Track (6) then head left (South) on this track until you reach the Long Point Track.  Head to the right (West) for about 50 metres then turn left (South East) along the Long Point Circuit Track (7).

This track still heads East and you cross Main Creek. Follow Main Creek upstream (East) with farmlands on your right side and National Park on your left side.
