Rouch Road Hike - Toolangi State Forest



Rouch Road is in the south-eastern tip of the Toolangi State Forest.

It starts at the Maroondah Highway, opposite the Black Spur Roadhouse, near the settlement of Narbethong, 70 km east of Melbourne.

It's a forest/fire-management road, once a logging route in the early 1900s, and follows the Hermitage Creek, on the eastern section of Black Range.

It continues to Monda Rd, and is gated during the winter months at the junction with Carson Track.

I walked 4 km (return) on this forest road on June 14, 2008, passing fern gullies, large ferns, the Hermitage Creek and tall regrowth timber.

Huge stumps remain along the side of the road, from the logging of the early 1900s - one stump still has a heavy rusting steel chain around its base.

Past the gate, the road is extremely steep.
