Alpine Track Hike - Dandenong Ranges National Park

The Alpine Track is in the Ferny Creek section of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, 35 km east of Melbourne.

It links with the Mountain Highway, passing through beautiful fern gullies and tall forest.

It's a fire management track, and walkers are allowed on it - locked gates are at each end.

The Track is part of the long 15 km Western Slopes Track, which stretches from Ferntree Gully Picnic Ground to the Mt Dandenong summit.

Sadly, the area was devastated in the terrible bushfires of January 1997, which resulted in several lives and many houses being lost in the rural zone bordering the Park.

I hiked the Alpine Track on July 14, 2007, about 5 km.
