    Completed this walk on 29 September 2013 with13 others from the Walking Club of Victoria. A pleasant walk with wet and dry forest areas and views across the Yarra valley, but watch out for trail bikes and muddy patches. The tree marking is no longer there and the posts are largely burnt at the Lowes Road/Xanthorrhoea Track junction and there was no signpost at the cleared area further along the track. So make sure you follow the map and head in the right direction!
