Hiking in the Cobaw State Forest

The Cobaw State Forest is a large preserved region of protected native bushland in the Cobaw Range, about 2500ha, near the town of Woodend, in Central Victoria, 75 km north of Melbourne.

The Forest was severely damaged by bushfires in 2003.

There are innumerable tracks and trails for walkers, trail bikes, and 4WDs, popular on weekends.

The ridges are strewn with granite boulders of all shapes and sizes.

There are nice views from Ridge Track towards Mt William, across the valley to the east.

Mysterious Hanging Rock is nearby.... be warned!

I visited this interesting Forest on January 9, 2008, a 4 km return hike up Ridge Track to the high point.

This was a climb from 560m to 690m, on a very hot day - 36 degrees!
