Olinda Creek Walking Track - Mt Evelyn Section
These Pix were taken on September 23, 2013.
They show the scenery and environment on a 2.5 km (return) section of the Olinda Creek Walking Track, starting at Tramway Rd, Mt Evelyn.
This track terminates at the Silvan Reservoir Park, some 5 km to the south. It was created in 1932 along the alignment of the Overhead Tramway, which transported construction materials in buckets from a siding at Mt Evelyn Railway Station to the Reservoir site.
This Section of the Track goes up a steep hill, across an open fire-break paddock after leaving Tramway Rd, and a stile and fence are crossed at the top, next to the junction of Hols Track. Here, signs give directions to Silvan, and Pipeline Track should be followed (also known as Management Road 10).
