The scenic Silvertop Ridge Track, Bunyip State Park

The Silvertop Ridge Track is in the southern section of the Bunyip State Park, 60 km east of Melbourne, past the town of Gembrook.

It is reached from the Mortimer Picnic Ground just off the Gembrook-Tonimbuk Rd, along gated Triangle Track.

It starts at the signposted junction of Windy Point and Link Tracks, about 1 km from the Picnic Ground.

It is a primarily a management track used for fire control purposes, but walkers, horses and cyclists are allowed on it.

It follows a ridge line, then descends steeply along a spur to the south of the Park, reaching Dyer's Picnic Ground.

It passes a large Water Point, through interesting bushland, mostly regrowth in a former logging area.

There are views across the valleys, somewhat obscured by tall timber.

Large granite outcrops and ferns are passed.

I did this 4 km (return) walk on January 15, 2009.
