Rocky Ridge Fireline Track, Bunyip State Park

Rocky Ridge Fireline Track is in the Black Snake Range, Bunyip State Park, about 65 km east of Melbourne.

It links the Black Snake Creek Rd with Williams Ridge Track, and starts at a gate about 2 km from White's Corner, at the junction of the Pack Track and Beenak East Rd.

The 3 km (return) track is very steep, and muddy after heavy rain, with an elevation increase from 249m to 354m, one of the highest points in the Park.

There are limited views to the Blue Range from a drainage cut-back at about 300m altitude.

The Black Snake Range is the centre range in the Park - to the south is the Weatherhead Range, to the north is the Blue Range.

Of Regional significance, it is an east-west divide consisting of Tynong Granite. The range rises to 400 m where there are numerous exposed granite slopes and large boulders. A granite downwash covers the lower slopes, and granite sand wash has partially filled minor valleys, creating swamps and heathland.

I explored this Track on Monday afternoon August 23, 2010.
