Grovers Hill

Grovers Hill is just to the south of Roxburgh town and a pleasant 1.5 hour, 3.7 km track loops up to the top of the hill and then around it, following the river back. The high point is the spectacular Frog Rock, where the track ascends to the top of a vertical cliff, affording wonderful views over Roxburgh and the Teviot Valley. Take extreme care and keep well back from the edge!

The track is signposted from Teviot Street and car parking is available at a small reserve. From here the track sharply ascends the hill and yellow markers are followed to lead up to Frog Rock. After admiring the views, pine forest is encountered, with the walk from here gentle and easy. Views from this side of the hill overlook the health camp and Roxburgh golf course.

Once at the end of the forest the track heads left down to the river. There is a short, marked diversion (via right from the main track) to see a miners grave set amongst the trees on the river bank. An easy walk back along the river affords good views up and down the valley.

This track is generally easy but steep and rough in places; good footwear should be worn.
