Short Walks In Myrtleford

Myrtleford is a delightfully walkable town with a variety of enjoyable short walks to suit everyone. One of the most popular walks is The Mosaic Trail, a loop that leaves right from the town centre and travels out along the Ovens River then back into town. Not only does it have over 80 hidden mosaics to discover, but the shared path is fully sealed, making it suitable for those using mobility aids or families looking for a safe place to take the kids bike riding. The track up Reform Hill to the lookout over Myrtleford is another popular walk, with more mosaics to discover too. The walk follows a well-worn dirt track up the hill past gold-mining history, natural bushland and, if you look carefully, native wildlife. History buffs will enjoy the Myrtleford History Walk, which is a self-guided stroll around the town's streets stopping at some of our historic landmarks along the way.
