Hard track
Starting from the end of Glasgow Road, Mount Dandenong, this walk follows Glasgow Track east toward Bourkes Lookout. If you're looking for a good workout this walk is definitelly it. From the start the track rises steeply uphill all the way till the lookout. But the views at the top make it all worth while. There are some scrambles along the way so be prepared. 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.
