Excellent 3 hour 13k easy walk from Clyde to Alexandra following the Clutha River. Or bike ride the Alexandra Clyde Anniversary track, In 1920 there were 20 dredges working on the Clutha River
In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.
Once across the Alexandra bridge you should not miss the River track sign on the light pole and to your right there is a small shed. So turn right and follow your nose up the Clutha river
Look down in to the creek I saw three rainbow trout feeding along side the bank. If it does rain do not worry take the bridges and board walks. you will see km markers all the way along the walk. A total of 11.3 km
Earnscleugh Historic tailings are easy to find just look for the old pieces of dredges lying beside the track. The Alexandra dredge produced 6500 ounces of gold over twelve rears.
I was lucky to fine a tree full of sweet plumbs for my lunch. There were Km markers set out along the track, that was handy. Then it was a quick peddle over the Clyde River bridge and into Clyde were I brought a burger for lunch.
