5 thoughts on “Mount Everard Circuit – Kinglake (20km)

  1. A great hike, especially the rain forest bit a the beginning/end. We did it yesterday and a few people were measuring over various devices and they all came out at over 20km, more closer to 21km.

    1. A few people have mentioned that the distance is different to what I have recorded. If anyone has a GPX file can you please send it to me so that I can check and update the hike if required? The distance I have advertised is based on a recording I did a few years ago but I won’t change it without a valid and updated GPX file.

  2. We’re pretty new to hiking and this was a great challenge for one of our first ‘big day’ hikes. I’m glad I read the signage at the start of the trail that recommended walking this anticlockwise as there was a rather steep downward section that would have been really tough going up! I think I have an updated gpx file with the length showing 20.1km, happy to share it if I knew how…

    1. Hi Marge, really glad you enjoyed the Mount Everard Circuit. Re the GPX file, would be fantastic if you are able to email it to me at [email protected] so that I can update the description. I was aware that it was closer to 20km but unfortunately when I hiked the circuit my GPS recorded only 18.8km. I suspect the newer GPS devices are more accurate
