Silvan Beginner Loop - Short Hike







Upcoming Dates


Looking for a beginners bush walk? Soak up the scenery as we explore the beautiful Dandenong ranges and experience the Australian Bush. This trail is mostly flat with a few short fun bits (which might mean uphill) but you’ll have our TSA guides to support you throughout. Did you know that the forest around Silvan Dam is located in the ‘rain-shadow’ of Mt Dandenong (so it’s the driest part of the national park) providing shelter when its raining and much needed shade in summer. Win win! 

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 2 and 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. 

The best part about our short hikes is when you become a TSA member you get one of these hikes FREE every month! Check out our MEMBERSHIP page, and get motivated, add accountability and improve mind and body with some adventure time in nature.
