Bellview Terrace Loop Walk
The Bellview loop is an ideal workout walk with a constant uphill climb on Bellview Terrace, pretty forest tracks, and a visit to One Tree Hill before returning via Lyrebird Track or the 1000 Steps / Kokoda Memorial Trail.
A number of trails lead off this walk and it can easily be shortened if preferred (or lengthened). The steepest section of the walk is the last section of Tyson Track as it goes up to One Tree Hill.
The 20 km hike all the way to Skyhigh Mt Dandenong starts from the picnic ground and is an ideal day hike for anyone wanting more of a challenge.
