Scenic Scout's Track, Warrandyte State Park

Scout's Track is in the northern section of the Warrandyte State Park, 25 km NE of the Melbourne CBD, linking Market Garden Track with the Yarra River. It' s a fire management track, shared with walkers, with a change in altitude from 128 m to 45 m.

Market Garden Track is reached from a gate on Clifford Drive, Wonga Park, at a small car park, near the entrance to the Clifford Scout Activity Centre. It follows the ridge line past equestrian centres and farms.

About 1 km along this track, signed Scout Track branches off and descends steeply through bushland to the river, where there is a viewing point at the end of a large clearing. This is the turnaround point - the track actually continues past the river, reaching the nearby Activity Centre a short distance away.

The return route can be made by going through the Centre and back to the start at Clifford Drive.

There are superb views to the Yarra Ranges and Dandenong Ranges from Market Garden and Scout's Tracks, with Mt St Leonard prominent.

My visit was on Friday afternoon June 5, 2009, and total walking distance was 3 km.
