Great circuit around the city! Southbank to Docklands could get packed and dodging tourists is a big test of patience.

Generally a really good trail. However, there are a few spots where b the two doors not seem to be well marked so it's easy to miss turn offs.
If going in a clockwise direction from the city, ..
Don't miss the turn across Footscray Rd St the lights immediately after Costco.
I completely missed the turnoff from The Moonee Ponds Creek trail to get across Flemington Rd into Royal Park. If you do then use the underpass under Mount Alexander Rd and U-turn to get on to the north side of Mt Alexander / Flemington Rds. Ride along Flemington Rd and turn left at the tram line which is the park.
Look out for the underpass at Rushall Station. If you miss it turn right on to the Merri Creek Trail and you'll get back to the Capital City Trail.
Once on the Yarra River Trail people on hand cycles or with buggies need to look out for the stairs. Not sure how to get around them though.
After that it's plain going.
With those small quibbles fixed, it is definitely a 5 star rating.
With the knowledge I have now I'll do it again for sure.

Not a bad trek around the city of Melbourne

Stunning array of vegetation around every turn and the rocks just top it off. Love this walk, and easy to do even in snow.

love it . done it on skates and bike

Awesome area. Definitely test yourself when you hit the snow. I recommend starting from Mount St Gwinear and up to baw baw. You can do a solid 20 kms while going off track and off the main trail.

Great easy-ish track. Couple of steep bits that can be slippery in wet weather but they are not too difficult. Kids could do this track but keep your eye on them so they don’t fall down a mineshaft.

Great hike, go all the way to Baw Baw and relax with a few beers

Apart from being a wet day this was a pleasant walk

Great hike with some great scenery. In winter the hike is great for testing your skills in the snow without going to far of the beaten track.

A great ride around the city to see the sites, with plenty of cafe options for coffee.
