We will walk along various tracks that meander through the forest that surround Silvan Reservoir. Initially, we may follow the Olinda Creek through fern gullies before crossing it to walk under tall stands Mountain Ash that grow on the eastern slopes of the Dandenong Ranges. We will then join tracks that will take us into the heart of the forest and onto the slopes of the dam. Lunch is planned for Eagles Nest Picnic ground. The track may then ascend to higher peaks closer to the waters edge before returning to the Sivan Picnic Grounds.
Medium walking with various undulations and some steeper sections. The pace will be easy going and the track good under foot although it will be muddy and slippery if there is any recent rainfall. The distance will be about 10-12 kms.
