Winter ascent to Mt Lofty, Warrandyte State Park



On Monday June 13, 2010, the Queen's Birthday Public Holiday, I went over to the Mt Lofty Section of the Warrandyte State Park, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

From the car park at the canoe launching ramp at the end of Lower Homestead Rd, I followed the Mt Lofty River Trail alongside the Yarra River.

This took me past the Observation Platform, then through bushland to a small beach at the Water Point and a picnic table.

From there it was a hike up the jeep track to the Summit of Mt Lofty.

The views crom the Summite are very spectacular, across the Park, the Yarra Valley, the Yarra Ranges and the Dandenong Ranges.

From there I followed the management road down to Lower Homestead Rd and back to the car park, about 3 km in all.

Mt Lofty overlooks the huge Heritage Country Club and its golf courses, and is the eastern perimeter of the Park.
