Ferntree Gully - Short and Social Hike







Upcoming Dates


Join us for a hike followed by a drink, some food, or something more. These are a great way to carve out a little more time for movement and social connection. (Food and drink not included)

Nearby to the famous 1000 Stairs, this is a wonderful area that is guaranteed to get you working as you power up hills and head towards the summit of One Tree Hill. Our track takes in a selection of wide gravel paths plus a few short sections of single track to keep you on your toes, and leaves enough recovery time to ensure you can chat with fellow hikers along the way. You won’t have to mix with crowds on the morning walk and can enjoy a few glimpses off the mountains towards the surrounding Melbourne landscape. This walk is one of the few short hikes directly accessible by public transport so it’s perfect for those commuter walkers too.

Do you want to add more hiking to your weekend and enjoy a healthier and fitter lifestyle? Our short walks are your best opportunity when you don’t have a whole day to spare, and we’ll have some morning snacks available to keep you going. It’s a great way to start your day, have a little exploration, and meet new people.

Our short hikes are usually around or less than 10km and graded 2, 3, or 4. At the easier end of the scale is a Grade 2 hike, perfect for beginners and those just wanting an active social outing. They are a great way to gain confidence, meet like minded people and start a journey of hiking. Our Grade 4 hikes have a few more hills and go at a quicker pace. Grade 3s are right in the middle!
