Walking along Motschall Track you follow a scenic dry stream along the road. The left turn to the connecting track is clearly marked. This part was the highlight of the walk and where we encountered our first cyclist on a walk.
Approaching Clintons Road the track borders on a carefully manicured large private property. Next the path crosses a very neat gravel driveway and continues on up the hill. Here you can walk on the road or to avoid the ten cars we saw you can use the foot track all the way to Broad Acres Road which is at the high corner of the riding club facility.
Optional Rob Roy Hill
Once you reach Rob Roy Road there is an optional leg to go up and down Rob Roy Hill Climb. As we were running behind time it was left out.
The track finishes near the riding club and before here we encountered five more cyclists! So once you get to Broad Acres Road you are walking on a road again, but this gravel road is very quiet and we encountered no traffic at all.
Back to the Car Park
Reaching the car we found the “car park” almost full, with people about to go gold panning. There is some gold still there but it’s more recreation than anything else. Probably more successful than going fishing.
As the walk is only one and a half hours long, you can go on another one; or do what we did and have a pint and lunch at the nearby Panton Hill Hotel.
