Description

After a leisurely climb to the upper Cornish Street Dam, there are only two options - return the same way or climb this steep path to Oakleigh Street.

Although there are a few steps along the way, and no concessions such as switchbacks to ease the grade, the incline is mercifully short.

Given its pleasant bush surroundings, this track is understandably popular with walkers and runners, so watch out for them.

Getting there

This track starts at the highest point of Cornish Street, just above the upper dam, and ends at the western side of Belmont Regional Park's Oakleigh Street car park.

Length

0.93km
