In the spirit of running off Xmas dinner I decided to explore some new trails today.
The Brisbane Ranges National Park, approximately 75km west of Melbourne, was the venue chosen. Hitting the trails just after 07:30, my route took in:
- Anakie Gorge
- Lower Stony Creek Reservoir (built in the 1870s)
- sections of the Burchell Trail
- the Ted Errey Nature Circuit
Some sections were quite slow going, with the loose rocky surfaces and a number of steep gradients making a potential ankle killing combination.
It was an absolutely gorgeous morning, with plenty of time to take some pics along the way. Some of my faves:
Next stop: NYE Rock around the Clock, night-time trail run in the You Yangs.
