I’m writing this letter in support of the Hoddle walking track.
I note that the South Gippsland Shire Council has called for submissions from the public regarding the future of the Fish Creek Quarry Road, from Fish Creek-Foster Road to Beards Road.
I strongly support the council’s intention to retain for public use the section of the Fish Creek Quarry Road, from Fish Creek-Foster Road to Beards Road, and to formally incorporate the road section into the Hoddle Mountain Trail (HMT).
I am a frequent walker of this track as it is local and I am from Fish Creek. There are many reasons why I enjoy this track. It is a stunning walk with beautiful flora and fauna to view.
I enjoy going on hikes all over Victoria and other countries and for general fitness. I hope that I and many other walkers will continue to be able to experience and enjoy the beauty of this whole track.
Louise Harfield, Fish Creek.
