Granite Peak Trail (Lysterfield Park)

Trail runners and hikers will enjoy the challenge of the Granite Peak Trail, Lysterfield Park.

Pitched at the more adventurous or for those looking for a challenge on their daily walk, this 5km Grade 4 trail climbs 165m uphill through native forest along the route of the old granite quarry tramline to Trig Point Lookout (223m). Whilst the gradient is steep, with some sections of uneven terrain, walkers are well rewarded with the spectacular 360-degree overlooking Melbourne.

Granite Peak Trail is for hikers, trail runners and walkers only. Mountain bikes are not permitted.
