Old Kinglake Rd - Northern Sector

The Old Kinglake Road, in the Wombalano Section of the Kinglake National Park, has been closed to public vehicle access for several years, and is now used by walkers, cyclists, horseriders and management vehicles.

It is steep and winding, passing through rugged forest, with the Dry Creek gully far down below.

There are many grass trees in the area!

There are some excellent views across the Park to Mt Jerusalem, and the distant Yarra Ranges, with Mts St Leonards and Monda prominent.

The 6 km Track runs between the junction of the Hurstbridge to Kinglake Rd and Steele's Creek.

I did the northern sector of the Track on June 10, 2007, having completed the southern sector on June 8, 2007. This was about 6 km return.

There is a fall in altitude from 445m to 270m - 175m - which makes the return ascent quite challenging!
