Join us on this delightful exploration of one of Melbourne's lesser known hills. Easy wide walking tracks combined with views, a gradual ascent make this a great beginner, this is a perfect walk for everyone, whether you are new to bush walking or would just like to be active and meet new people.  Do you enjoy the fresh air and getting into nature to escape the chores and routines? This grade 2 walk has a little hill to climb but with an easy wide path and lots of chitchat with new friends you will smash this walk.The climb is gradual and manageable. You will be rewarded along this out and back walk with lovely views over Healesville, Maroondah Reservoir and the surrounding mountains. You also get to experience our yummy homemade snacks, a healthy homemade lunch and some fruit.
