Mv visit of April 3, 2017.
The Summit is reached via a 1 km (return) walking path from a small car park on Mt Morton Rd. It's 273 m asl, and 259 m above the car park.
Mount Morton has high local significance as a district landmark, used as a military observation post in the First World War, and for its associations with a popular walking track from Belgrave Station to Mount Morton developed in the 1920s.
It's managed by the Shire of Yarra Ranges. The reserve covers the highest part of a small hill. Parts of the hill have been cleared, and there are some areas of regrowth of wattles and eucalypts which now obscure views from the summit. There is a permanent survey mark at the highest point. The reserve is surrounded by private land. Many of the larger trees on the reserve appear to be suffering from dieback
The site is listed in the Victorian Heritage Database as a location of significance.
There is a small stone picnic shelter close to the road. It is constructed of rough, split stone, and may have been re-roofed. A section of a low side wall has been removed.
