Branding Yard Trail

Part of the You Yangs Regional Park between Melbourne and Geelong. There are many hiking, running and mountain bike trails in the park which range in difficulty. I ran the Branding Yard Trail as part of a run that incorporated other trails in the area. It is a mostly flat trail with a few ups and downs particularly at the start/finish part of the trail. The trail starts and finishes at the turn table car park which inside the park grounds past the main office about 2km up. There is a monolith monument along the trail that is pretty cool. It's is a moderate run and would be an easy walk.

Hanging Rock

Hanging Rock is the location famous for the Mystery surrounding school girls who apparently went missing there in the year 1900. The movie "A Picnic at Hanging Rock" brought this story new interest, and its now a very popular landmark. Hanging Rock is located near the small Victorian town of Woodend, about an hour North of the state capital city, Melbourne.

The Hanging Rock Facility offers carparking, toilets, food, and parklands for bbq's and picnics, apart from the very worthwhile walk up Hanging Rock.

The walk up Hanging Rock is a CLASS 3 level walking track. This walk offers many great photo opportunities, and certainly the impression of mystery and perhaps eeriness.

Definitely a worthwhile stop during your travels ....

Keppel Lookout Trail

The most challenging walk in the area, Keppel Lookout Trail climbs up through Mountain Ash and Stringybark forest to visit four of Marysville’s best lookouts.
There are spectacular views across Marysville, Cathedral Range State Park and Steavenson Falls. The trail is fairly uneven and steep in places, and walkers need to be self sufficient with food and water and wear sturdy footwear.
