Adventure Description

Mt Juliet Summit is a 9km trail which follows Mount Juliet Walking Track in the Yarra Ranges. It’s not technical, however, it’s steepish, unforgiving and good for training (don’t wear tight jeans, its a lot of up). One blog describes it as “thousand steps x 4”. It has numerous false summits, there isn’t much of a view on top and its regarded by most to be one of the hardest trails in Victoria. But, its the BEST for alpine training (imho, far better than Glasgow Track or other trips). Bring a walking stick. At some points, its easily to slide down on your butt.

It will take long, and you should evaluate the effect of any injuries you may have on your abilities. This is a good opportunity to test your stamina if you want to do harder adventures in the future. There are no bathrooms..

The trail itself is fairly easy. Start at the entrance from the road (there is room for at least 4 or 5 cars there, but its not a proper car park). Follow the trail down “Road 3”, until you reach the sign pointing to Mount Juliet walking track. The initial 2km is ok.. Then prepare for death 🙂
