Backstairs Track, Warburton

The Backstairs Track is a 3 km return trail following the Scotchman's Creek Valley, in the Yarra State Forest, 80 km east of Melbourne.

It passes through the delightful Dolly Grey Historical Park.

The main (northern) access is at the Melbourne end of Warburton township, at Scotchman's Creek Rd and it terminates high up at the Old Warburton Rd, flanking Mt. Little Joe.

The Track is steep, rocky and muddy in parts, and is maintained by the Warburton Advancement League Inc.

I hiked this interesting track on February 16, 2010, a hot day, and extremely humid in the forest.

There is an increase in altitude from 150 m to 330 m, and some sections of the Track have deteriorated since my previous visit some two years ago.
