I hiked this Trail on Wednesday afternoon May 19, 2010, starting at the small car park on Gold Memorial Rd.
This led me up a narrow foot-track, past the Monument Mines and the Johnson Mine, to the summit of Fourth Hill.
From there, the track passed the top of the Johnson Mine, adjacent to old excavations, then descended back to the car park.
These dates are significant:
Before 1939: Aboriginal people of the Wurundjeri clan lived in the area which was later to be known as Warrandyte
1839: First selection of land by white settler, James Anderson
1851: Gold discovered in Anderson Creek - first miners arrive
1874: Warrandyte's largest nugget found, over 100oz
1883: Rich returns from Victory Mine
1904: Caledonia Mine, closed 1912
1935: Gold Memorial cairn unveiled
1965: Last gold mine lease in Warrandyte ended
