Reid's Mill Tramway Track, Powelltown




The Reid's Mill Tramway Track is an easily graded trail which follows an old timber tramway to the site of Reid's Sawmill which was in use from 1920 to 1930.

It starts on the Noojee Road, about 500 m east of Powelltown, 70 km east of Melbourne.

The trail passes through magnificent tree ferns and tall mountain ash before entering dryer stringy bark forest.

Care should be taken when crossing the bridges provided over several small streams. A few relics of the mill can still be seen at the end of the trail.

The return walk can be made by following the Big Bertha Track.

I completed this 4 km (return) trail on March 24, 2008.
