I tried to do the Moonee Ponds Creek trail -> Western Ring Rd path -> Merri Creek trail loop today. I started in Moonee Ponds. The Western Ring Rd path was easier to follow than I expected and I made it to Merri Creek without problem
There were quite a few broken bottles near Jacana station on the Western Ring Rd path.
Just before the rain started pelting down at 3pm, I made it to the Bell St exit along Merri Creek and took refuge in a bus shelter
I waited till the rain slowed down and rode back home along Bell St to Moonee Ponds, disappointed that I couldn't quite complete the loop
I was impressed with the flow of Merri Creek
I think the Moonee Ponds Creek should be renamed to a brook at best
