Swamp Yate Horse trail (You Yangs Regional Park)

The Swamp Yate Horse Trail showcases the varied landforms of the You Yangs. Follow the green signs through a eucalypt plantation before skirting the edge of Hovells Creek before heading into the heart of the rugged plantation. The easy horse trail meanders along management tracks, wide enough for two horses.
