*Please note, the walking track from Red Hill to Merricks is quite well maintained but good walking shoes are recommended. Other than the odd muddy patch in wet seasons, the track provides for an easy walk which is all on a level or slightly down hill terrain. There is one steep but very short up hill section mid way. Please note this is an all weather event.
