Christmas walk with festive drinks and nibbles. Churchill N.P-Tramline/Granite Peak Trail
Distance: 16 km
Walking Time: 4.5-5 hours medium grade, some uphill sections.
Starting at the main picnic area car park at Churchill NP inside the entry gates, we follow a series of tracks up to the Trig Point, with some lovely views out over surrounding suburbs. Along the way, expect to be watched by swamp wallabies and kangaroos that are plentiful in this park.
Heading down towards Lysterfield Lake we turn off Casuarina Track onto the historic Tramline/Granite Peak Track that takes us back to the Trig Point to retrace our steps to the picnic area.
Here we will partake in some festive drinks and nibbles hosted by the club to celebrate the season and the end of another year of walking with YHA.
