The Tan Track reopened - Sherbrooke
A vital piece of Sherbrooke land has been restored and reopened to the public.
The 2.7 km Tan Track, which runs along Sherbrooke Rd linking Sherbrooke to Ferny Creek, is bustling with life again.
In 2011 and 2012, Parks Victoria staff restored the track and clearing it of weeds including English Ivy and holly.
The track, once part of the historic Burnham Beeches estate, became part of the Dandenong Ranges National Park in 1997, and has now been upgraded to allow cyclists, dog walkers, horse riders and bush walkers full access through the area.
The Track has also been extended to Hilton Rd in Ferny Creek. Parks Victoria maintains a 20m fuel break alongside the track.
I visited the Track on November 6, 2012, doing the Loop Circuit.
