Hard to follow the track in parts, not good in the wet or at night. But a lot of fun, a challenging walk for such a short distance

Great track, beautiful views, and lots of kangaroos and other wildlife.

Some beautiful spots along the way. At approximately the halfway point there are views back to the city. Saw a lot of kangaroos, echidnas, lizards and native birds. This walk took us right on four hours, walking at a leisurely pace with a few short stops along the way.

Great training ground for trail running, a nice undulating course with a mixture of grass and trail surfaces to navigate.

Solid outing if you get there before the trek gets busy. If busy, I would avoid like the plague.

when I was getting a good warm up the trail was over.. so it is not really hard its moderate.

Great workout, challenging incline. Takes approx one hour up and back. We did lyrebird track up and 1000 steps down, which is better as lots of people to dodge on 1000 steps.

Recommend getting there early as by 10am the place is jam packed and no parking except up the road.

Best view from the top! Hard but worth it trail

Good walk, not too challenging, a couple of hills and a relatively long track. Well marked most of the way. Would happily do this walk again.

Great walk with some distant hills that give a good cardio workout. peaceful. Great training spot for harder walks/hikes.

nice walk in a green urban environment however the road noise level is a bit too high and there is a lot of rubbish everywhere.

Nice short track with elevation but way too many people.

One of the few tracks easily accessible on public transport.

Saw kangaroos

Fantastic walking trail. Well marked trail.
Stunning views. Worth doing. 16kms in 2hrs 45mins at a fast pace

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

Pleasant Sunday stroll

Great urban forest loop where you can escape the sense of city for a while and be surrounded by trees and even kangaroos!

Much better than expected. Saw some big kangaroos, one with a Joey in its pouch. Easy and enjoyable :)

Tor: A moderately short, but beautiful, narrow, rainforest trail which serpentines its way up along a modest creek. With an almost garden-esque feel, stone stairs climb ever steeper, interpolated by short stretches of flatness and a couple of benches along the way. A few fitness fanatics will likely elbow past you as you take in the surroundings and ubiquitous, ambient bird chatter. MaryKay: When you get to the top, keep going up to One Tree Hill via the remembrance memorial signs...the kookaburras were plentiful on the hill and totally unfazed by us. We had three feeding and singing around us, hopping on the ground searching for worms within several feet.

Definitely a must in Melbourne!

good for hiking. nice view

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.

Love it. Good cardio.

Goes right by the river, easy, pleasant

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

I did this hike in preparation for Mt Kilimanjaro and thought it was a bit basic for my goal but the scenery was beautiful. Not very hilly and quite well signposted but a nice walk.

great walk such beautiful scenery quite tough if your not fit water at bottom and top

amazing walk very scenic
