Excellent, lots of different scenery. A great afternoon. :) Was about 15km and took us 3hrs at an easy pace with a couple of stops.

Great walk along the bay, take your time and grab a coffee along the way!

scenic and easy trail .. loved it!

Definietly not moderate - much harder than the 1000 steps but I’d do it again - it was cloudy so no views :(

Not moderate, hard, I've had people tell me this is harder than the 1000 steps, we will say this track starts from the bottom of glasgow road, everyone parks at the bottom for it, the hike isnt easy, as it is nothing but uphill, it starts off night and easy, then it becomes a real grind until the final few minutes of the walk. once you're at the 'top' turn right for the lookout, the view is stunning.

I love this climb up the side of Mt Dandenong. Definitely a hard climb though and a suggestion to go down Zig Zag track for an easier and safer descent

It’s a circular trail with decent incline/decline at the valley. I had numerous encounters with lyrebirds and kookaburra. It’s a nice quick morning walk to start the day.

This was a nice and easy hike. You can walk on the trail or walk on the beach for sections.
