Macedon - Short Hike
A favourite starting point for our longer walks, this is also a great spot to start a morning short walk around the lower tracks and trails of the Macedon Ranges. With the trails getting slippery in winter, this area is a wonderful place to absorb some greenery and expel some carbon dioxide as you hop and skip your way around the mountain. This may seem daunting but your sense of accomplishment at the end will outweigh any doubts you may have! Hills are the best way to improve your fitness and some lively conversation with new friends will get those synapses firing. A perfect morning hike for those wanting a challenge.
Do you want to add more hiking into your weekend and enjoy a healthier and fitter lifestyle? We know that sometimes you just want to get out, catch up, have a social morning and get a little more confident on the trail. Our short walks are your best opportunity when you don’t have a whole day to spare, and we’ll have some morning snacks available to keep you going. It’s a great way to start your day, have a little exploration and get you feeling happier and healthier!
Our short hikes are usually less than 10km and graded 2-5 with 2 being at the easier end of the scale and perfect for beginners and those just wanting a social stroll. They are a great way to gain confidence, meet like minded people and start a journey of hiking. Our 4-5 hikes will have a few more undulations and a quicker pace, and suitable for those with moderate to good fitness and there is always the chance of an extra TSA ‘let’s go this way’ element.
The best part about our short hikes is when you become a TSA member you get one of these hikes FREE every month! Check out our MEMBERSHIP page, and get motivated, add accountability and improve mind and body with some adventure time in nature.
