The RidgeWalk track was established through extensive community consultation and rigorous site evaluation. User experience, local connectivity, minimal environmental impact and proximity to parking infrastructure and public transportation were strongly considered.
With 14 kilometers of new and upgraded tracks, RidgeWalk leads visitors through stunning natural sites. At the same time, it provides insight into the cultural heritage of the region and prompt reflection upon human connection with the natural world. It offers a contemporary exploration of art, landscape and Indigenous ways of knowing.
The track is carefully aligned to provide a varied experience. Visitors enjoy views of the Melbourne skyline through the treetops, are immersed in the ecosystem of the forest floor and encounter vibrant communities, towns and villages.
We've prepared a map of the RidgeWalk route to date on Google Maps for community members to view. Please note that the path has not been finalised.
