Pyrenees Endurance Trail is a 23.5km, grade 4 One Way hike located in Pyrenees Range Victoria. The hike should take approximately 10hrs to complete.

Summary

The Pyrenees Endurance Trail commences on the North East side of the ranges at Waterfalls Picnic area near No. 2 Creek and finishes to the South west at Warrenmang Rd. From the start it is a steady climb of around 2km to the summit oof Mt Avoca.The trail then makes its way west across the Great Dividing Range to Cameron Track (approx 12.8km from the start). If you are planning this as a two day hike turn right onto Cameron Track and walk approximately 400m to Cameron Camp. Them return to this juntion the following morning. From Cameron Track continue west using a combination of walking trail and short sections of 4WD tracks.

In places the track is narrow, steep, overgrown and as the trail descends from Smith track through tall Iron Bark forest its covered in leaf litter and shed bark making it barely visible in places. Keep your eyes on the sparse marker poles with orange triangles to avoid heading off track.

Overnight Camp

Due to the length and steepness of this trail it is recommended as an overnight hike. Cameron Camp (200 mtrs North of the walking trail along Cameron Track) is a good place for the overnight stop as there is a shelter, toilet and tank water.

Getting there

From Melbourne, take National Highway M8 towards Ballarat. Turn right at Sunraysia Hwy/B220 in Mitchell Park. Continue on Sunraysia Hwy/B220 towards Avoca. Turn left onthe the Pyranees Highway then right onto Vinoca Road. Continue along Waterfall Track to Ebling Track and the carpart near the start of the walk.

Tips

The trail is well marked with orange markers on posts as well as other signage and there is water at the start and Cameron’s Camp.
The creeks are usually dry except after rain.
