Granite Peak Trail (Lysterfield Park)


Granite Peak Trail (Lysterfield Park)

Trail runners and hikers will enjoy the challenge of the Granite Peak Trail, Lysterfield Park.

Pitched at the more adventurous or for those looking for a challenge on their daily walk, this 5km Grade 4 trail climbs 165m uphill through native forest along the route of the old granite quarry tramline to Trig Point Lookout (223m). Whilst the gradient is steep, with some sections of uneven terrain, walkers are well rewarded with the spectacular 360-degree overlooking Melbourne.

Granite Peak Trail is for hikers, trail runners and walkers only. Mountain bikes are not permitted.

Lysterfield mountain bike trail closures

Following significant storm damage to mountain bike trails in October 2021, Parks Victoria has decided to close all Mountain Bike Trails.  The trails have been assessed to be in an ‘unsafe condition’ due to heavily degraded surface integrity, major drainage issues, tree hazards and areas of high soil instability.  

This decision has not been made lightly but is necessary in order to maintain visitor safety. Parks Victoria is working hard with its partners and volunteers to open the trails as soon as possible.  This will occur in three stages, with the first stage targeted for completion and trails opened by Tuesday 7 December.
