Starting near the end of Donnelly’s Weir Road, Healesville, this circuit walk loops past Mount St Leonard via the Condons Track. This highly challenging but rewarding circuit takes you through beautiful forest and bushland along the edges of the Yarra Ranges. Enjoy the beautiful sound of birds, and keep a lookout for kangaroos. The initial part of the track is wide and easy to follow, but then it becomes very steep, particularly near the top. Condons Track ends at the Monda Road which is a wide and flat fire trail, making for a much needed cool-down period. A short steep climb to the top of Mount St Leonard takes you to an observational platform, from where there are excellent views of the Yarra Ranges, Port Phillip Bay, You Yangs and Macedon Ranges. At just over 1000m, this is the highest part of the walk. The track then descends back to Donnelly's Weir. Be aware that some sections of this walk can get very muddy and slippery after rain, and walking poles can be helpful. This is a relatively tough walk with many steep ascents and descents, requiring a moderate amount of fitness and endurance. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
