Mt Lofty in Early Autumn

Mt Lofty is the highest point in the eastern section of the Warrandyte State Park, 25 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

On April 9, 2009, I visited the area, doing a 4 km return walk to the Mt Lofty Summit, starting at the gate to Stephen Track off Reserve Rd, reached from Jumping Creek Rd.

This walk took me up Stephen Track steeply to the summit, then along the ridge, to a turnaround point near the fire track.

The views from the summit are outstanding, easterly across the Upper Yarra Valley to the Yarra Ranges, and south to the Dandenong Ranges.

There is a picnic table and seat at the Summit, and an information board is nearby at the junction with Wayne Track.
