    This one looks good ?

    We’ve done this one many times. First during training for Everest Base Camp, then the Inca Trail, then Kilimanjaro. We park one car where the track crosses the road, then drive the other car back down to the bottom. Then we walk to the summit and back down to the road. We still get all of the training done without having to risk the slippery parts on the way down. (It gets very muddy in winter.)

  • Never mind Darren! Sometimes I just can’t wait to go for a hike… Did it today, including the Cement Creek track down to the aqueduct. Cement Creek itself is still kind of marked with orange triangles for a little way, but then orange tape and small red plastic core triangles lead the way. It is very overgrown, washed away and covered with huge trees. At the beginning, from the top there is a Parks Vic no acces/ track closed sign though… Road 3 is a Yarra Water road “authorised access” only. Had gone too far not to just do it, linked me right on to the aqueduct as planned! At this point I ran out of water so the aqueduct walk wasn’t as pleasant as it otherwise would have been. Looks like the deer are absolutely out of control, signs of them everywhere along the sides of the aqueduct, degrading the concrete edges. Certainly wasn’t game on refilling from one of the many creeks. What a day! Roughly a total of 27 km, now the biggest day hike I’ve done.

    Walk guide comments above seem good, is the trail fool proof, well signed so cant get lost ?
