Garden Hill and Nicholas Lane, Kangaroo Ground

A walk from Eltham and Environs Walking Group.

Walk Description

From the Eltham Environs Walking Group, walk 41M

Commences in Cemetery Rd at Kangaroo Ground Cemetery. Walk beyond the car park, away from the road, to a grassy trail, both to the left and right. This is the Garden Hill Trail. Turn left, and follow the horse trail south for about 800m to Eltham-Kangaroo Ground Rd. Cross the road (care: speed limit 80kph), then turn left into Henley Rd. After 200m, turn left into Carters La. Walk for about 900m.down the hill. Turn left into Nicholas La and proceed 2km to rejoin Eltham-Kangaroo Ground Rd. Turn right, and walk 300m to Dawsons Rd. Turn left. After 800m, climb the embankment on the left to rejoin Garden Hill Trail. Note that the point where the trail enters Dawson Rd can be difficult to see. It is at the western end of an olive grove on the left, and near the lowest point along Dawson Rd. Walk up and along the trail for 1.3km, back to the cars. For a different perspective, this walk is equally interesting in the reverse direction. Unfortunately, both Nicholas Lane and Carter Lane are now sealed, and without verges. In late Spring, the grass can be very long along Garden Hill Trail.
