Lyrebird Creek - Olinda Forest
One of my favourite hikes in the Olinda Forest, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD, is along the Eagle Nest Track.
The hike starts at the Eagle Nest Picnic Ground, at the end of Eagle Nest Rd, turn off from Silvan Rd.
The route follows the Lyrebird Creek gully, reaching Hermon's Track, then circling back to the Picnic Ground, crossing the historical bridge oiver the Lyrebird Creek.
This hike is about 3 km in total, and passes through tall timber forest, fern gullies and tall tree ferns.
