I blame my wikiloc for false tracking me, my live track with a trail that Researched and was live following.
The full loop of Mount Macedon. Taking into: Memorial Cross, The Camels Hump, Sanatorium Lake, Mount Towrong
I was lead to believe I was still on green trail even through dense bush bashing from eco trail picnic ground. Not once did it alert me that I was vering off or lost until I realised I was completely lost.
ended up in someone private property and popped out into Falls Road. Connecting back onto Mount Macedon Road, but by this stage my reception was terrible and I still couldn’t connect to google maps to find out which direction was to the town. After turning around and walking for another hour, I ended up ubering back thinking I was still 4km away but turned out I was only 1km away from my car. Was equipped for an emergency overnight and had warm gear and headlight and plenty of water. My first point of call is to just by a proper gps as i solo hike regularly and never want this to happen again. Even with hard copies of map and PDF files saved on my phone.
Ego burnt big time. Many lessons learnt, cannot wait to redo this circuit again!
First thing first get myself a gps tracker with a very strong antenna signal in case of emergency.
