We got lost a few times, but found another tiny walking track that was the highlight of the walk.

Great track. Very open and well maintained. Lots of nice views and heaps of other well maintained tracks coming off the main one. There are some hills however would be fine for beginners like myself. Enjoyable drive from Melbourne as well.

I would recommend this trail for beginners to advanced walkers, the ground was a little soft due to recent rain, sun and shade In all areas Some parts were step but manageable Overall a nice peaceful track

Nice up and down trail for beginners. Shady and sunny spots. Can be slightly muddy/soften ground if there has been heavy rain. Plenty of tracks to follow.

Went down the Rock track, Yallambee Way, Simmons Ave. Steady ascension up Simmons way to the Mathias track. Pooped from the RJ Hamer look out car park. 2 short stops along the way.

Fantastic walk, beautiful scenery and nature in view. Very dog friendly with dogs allowed off lead. Please note this is not an easy walk as it has some long and steep hills and you’ll find yourself out of breath but I’d still highly recommend this walking trail.
