About the Walk
The Chick Hill Track was created by the Warby Bushwalking Club, Parks Vic. and Hamilton Park residents, providing magnificent views across the Ovens Valley to Mt Buffalo and Mt Bogong. The walk showcases some of the best features of the Warby Ovens National Park, including grass trees, regrowth forest and wildflowers, and appreciation of how accessible this NP is to the nearby residents of Wangaratta and Glenrowan.
