|Now this is something you don't see every day.|
|Heading along Channel Track I was never far from the power lines.|
|From the top of my first climb if I squinted I could just make out the Melbourne CBD.|
|Looking towards Mount Dandenong from Trig Point Lookout.|
|Grassy Spur lived up to it's name, and made for some of the best walking of the day.|
|Wandering down to Stonemasons Track, the morning slightly overcast conditions had brightened into a beautiful day.|
|Syphon Track spat back out onto Channel Track.|
I walked 9.4 kilometres and climbed 275 metres on this stroll. I was using Mr Chapman's notes and he rates this as a medium grade walk so I'll go with that, but really it's borderline easy. This is walk # 21 in the 2011 edition of Day Walks Victoria. This little walk is a fairly inoffensive little stroll, while there are no outstanding scenic highlights Churchill National Park does allow you to escape the suburbs and enjoy the sights and smells of the Aussie bush, and in my case it's very close to home. I just used Mr Chapman's notes and mud map as well as my GPS but I'm sure Parks Vic would have a free map online that would get you through, there are a lot of tracks criss-crossing the park so you shouldn't really get lost.
