Summit hike up Mt Lofty - Warrandyte State Park





These photos were taken on Thursday December 30, 2010, in the Warrandyte State Park, 40 km east of central Melhourne.

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!
