Summer75 MTBO Wraps Up at Hawkstowe on March 2

After three fantastic Summer 75 Events this year, the series will conclude on a brand new map at Hawkestowe Park. This is the first time the whole area has been opened to mountain bike orienteering. The start location is the historic Le Page Homestead and picnic area and the course extends north to Bridge Inn Road through a maze of tracks in the Morang Wetlands. Those visiting all controls will cover over just over 21km.

There are a mixture of tracks from fast riding on recreational pathways. The vehicle and single tracks in the park are mostly moderate and easy. There are some more technical bits to challenge gun riders and some trackless ridable areas in open areas. The tracks are dry despite going through wetland areas.

The wetlands were created by basalt mining operations and the Plenty Gorge Park is now controlled by ParksVic. There is a little bit of suburban parkland in Hawkestowe, an area incorporating the Wilton Creek Wetlands. Most riders will go by the Carome Homestead.

The “Two Beans and a Farm” Caf√© Restaurant at Carome Homestead is open till 10 pm that evening for those who want to enjoy a superb sunset over the Plenty River with coffee and cake.
