Martyr Rd to Summit:

This is a steep trail run / Hike.

Starting from Martyr rd Warburton, you head up hill until you reach the paved road, cross the road and follow the signs onto a gravel road this section is possible to run.

You will reach the summit in 3.5km from memory but could be wrong.

Hit the summit when you see the sign then turn around and come back down.

This is a hard slog to the top with some huge gumtree forest, lyre birds and other wildlife plus amazing views of the valley below.
