Eagle Nest Walk, Olinda Forest

One of the most scenic walks in the Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges Natiolnal Park, is a 3 km circuit, starting at the Eagle Nest Picnic Ground.

This is reached from the Silvan Rd.

The route follows gated Eagles Nest Rd, then Georges Rd, Boundary Rd, reaching the Valley Picnic Ground.

From there, the route is along the eastern boundary of the picnic ground, along a jeep track, reaching Rifle Range Gully Rd. This is followed to a junction with Hermon's Track, then continues to the Eagle Nest picnic ground.

The walk passes through tall forest, fern gullies, over footbridges, and around the Lyrebird Creek gully.

Both picnic grounds were once farms in the 1940s, prior to being absorbed into the National Park.

My walk was on December 4, 2008.
