From the small car park at the junction of Lower Homestead Rd and Stephens Track, I hiked to the summit of Mt Lofty.
On a high point nearby was the fenced section of preserved remnant forest, an example of how this section of the Park looked prior to clearing in the early 1900s.
Around the Summit itself, many large brown/white mushrooms had appeared, the first occasion I had seem them anywhere in the Park!
The views across the Yarra Valley were glorious, to the Yarra Ranges amd Dandenong Ranges.

I've included some historical images of the Warrandyte district dating back to the late 1800s.
My hiking distance was 3 km total.
