Robert's Track, Christmas Hills

Robert's Track is a scenic trail in the Christmas Hills, 40 km north-east of Melbourne.

It links unsealed Butterman's Rd with One Tree Hill Rd, passing through preserved bushland, at the base of One Tree Hill, and flanking the large Wanneroo Stud Farm.

It is a primarily a fire management track, gated, but access is permitted for walkers.

There are good views towards the Kinglake Ranges, Yarra Ranges, and the Dandenong Ranges.
The northern sector passes through the Rifle Range Reserve and the newly proclaimed Warrandyte-Kinglake Nature Conservation Reserve, and is adjacent to the Kinglake National Park.

I completed this 8 km (return) hike on February 1, 2008.

Northern access to the track is from a small car park on Butterman's Rd, between the towns of St Andrew's and Yarra Glen.

Southern access is from the Eltham-Yarra Glen Rd, via One Tree Hill Rd.

Tghere are excellent views across the Yarra Valley from the Mt Wise Rd, which leads into Butterman's Rd.
