Olinda Forest circuit Hike

On Sunday February 7 2010 I visited the Olinda Forest, in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, 30 km east of Melbourne.

It was a hot day, and I parked at the junction of Olinda Creek Rd and Gated George's Track.

I followed George's Track uphill, along the ridge, then down to the junction with Hermon's Track.

I proceeded along Hermon's Track, then turned off into the unsigned Possum Track, and down into the gully.

This track crosse a long-dry creek!

Then it was an ascent up the other side of the gully, through beautiful fern trees, reaching George's Track, then back to the car.

This circuit was about 5 km.

I passed several other hikers and two horseriders on George's Track!

See all of the Photos of my visit!
