They show the spectacular panoramas from the summit of Mt Lofty - the Yarra River winds its way around the base of the mountain.
My route started from the gate at the junction of Lower Homstead Rd and Stephen Rd, then a steady climb to the summit where there is a picnic table and seat. From there, a steep descent down the fire management track to the water point on the Yarra, where another picnic table and seat is located.
I sat there for a while and drank my boxed Apple Juice and listened to the birds singing in the nearby bushland.
The return was along the same route.
This was a terribly hot day, temperature was about 37 degrees!
