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.

Some barbeques not in operation

Parks Victoria is carrying out inspections in all of our barbecues in our parks. Following these inspections, some barbecues have been temporarily closed until they can be attended by a licenced contractor. We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.
Visitor safety is our top priority and we advise people to please not to use any barbecue facilities that have been closed. We expect the impacted barbecues to reopen in the coming weeks.
