Montacute Heights to Cudlee Creek
After an initial undulating walk along Moores Rd the trail makes a long and steep descent to Sixth Creek before climbing through Montacute Con. Park and Mt. Crawford Forest Reserve. A pleasant walk past private gardens along Holland Creek completes a quite demanding yet rewarding walk.
