Wilkerr begins with a long flowy descent. It might feel easy at first, but you'll soon encounter some well-placed technical features.
Much of the natural rocky outcropping is integrated seamlessly along the trail. If you look up, you might also see the imposing 'target rock' to the right of the track: local marksmen used to practice their accuracy there as they readied for war.
At the northern end of the Park, Wilkerr gets pretty close to the creek, before curling back to the south. There's an opportunity to hop across to Murnong (#4), or build up some pace before a steady switchback climb to bring you back to the Northern Hub.
In the language of the Dja Dja Warrung, 'Wilkerr' means 'Dingo'
There used to be quite a few dingoes in these parts. Back in 1846, the nearby Dog Rocks' was given it's anglo-name by Lockhart Morton—manager of Sutton Grange station—who saw packs of them congregating on the rocks.
Wilkerr descends from the Northern Trail Hub towards the northern boundary of the Park.
The start of the trail requires navigation of some granite rock features with the trail then developing into a series of medium sized berms that provide a great flow.
Further down, the trail again incorporates a number of rocky platforms that can be ridden with momentum.
After the thrilling descent, the trail winds its way up the slope on a modest gradient. Rocky outcrops provide interesting lines and some technical challenges, before the trail emerges at the Northern Trail Hub.
