Pound Creek Track, Sherbrooke Forest



An interesting 2 km hiking route is in the south-western section of the Sherbrooke Forest, Dandenong Ranges NP, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

My visit was on Monday afternoon June 21, 2009, starting at the car park on the Belgrave-Monbulk Rd, opposite Limbscombe Break, at the back of the Tavern.

This took me along Hillclimb Track, then into Avard's Track, climbing steeply to the top of the hill opposite Sandell's Rd.


From there, I joined the Pound Creek Track, which descended through forest to a junction with Hillclimb Track, then back to the carpark. There is a rise in altitude on Avard's Track from 287 m to 333 m - the track is slippery, steep and rocky and care is needed in damp weather.
