The Nature Trail is about 3 km circuit, starting at the Jumping Creek picnic ground, Warrandyte State Park, 30 km east of Melbourne town.
It is best followed from the sign at the car park, along the Yarra, with some good views of the river. A junction is reached, where the Blue Tongue Bend track continues to the left, and the Nature Trail to the right.
The Trail is followed through bushland. Some sections are indistinct, but there are numbered markers for guidance. The trail goes uphill and passes the boundary of private property at its highest point, and there are interesting views across the Yarra gorge.
The trail reaches the fire management road and this is followed back to the car park.
Be very, very afraid on this Trail, as there are wild lions nearby!
See all of the Photos of my visit, which includes a lion!
