They show the scenery, environment, and flora on a 4 km (return) hike to the summit of Henderson Hill, which overlooks the Maroondah Reservoir.
My route was from the Henderson picnic ground at the base of the Reservoir, following the Donnelley's Weir Track.
There was an increase in altitude from 120m to 250m - the track is steep and stony in sections, and there is a seat at the summit!
There are nice views towards the Yarra Ranges through tall timber, much of which was destroyed in the February 2009 fires, but now regenerating.
See all of the Photos of my trip!
