Track Head is the One Tree Hill picnic ground at the end of One Tree Hill rd. Off the Mt. Dandy Tourist Rd. Take Tyson track a steep downhill which joins Outlook Rd. Climb gently turn left into Ramu Rd. A quick descent along Bellview tce to the Ferntree Gully NP. picnic grounds. (beware of walkers.) Then follow the track along the train lines which turns from gravel into a made bike path. Turn right up Hilltop rd and follow it steeply to the left and take Jean st on your right. Which rises steeply and doubles back on itself before bringing you back to the National Park. Go through the gate which leads to a track called The Boulevard which climbs gradually and brings you to the beginning of the Feather Track which is an easy descent to the bitumen a short distance right along the bitumen will bring you back into the National Park at an intersection of tracks. Head up steep hill and take the View Track. If struggling for time you can take the Macedon Track on your right which is a pretty track and gentle ride back to Ramu Av Otherwise climb a little futher to Chandlers Track. A nice quick downhill section. Head right up the Hansen Track which climbs stedily to Mystic rd turn right then retrace your steps along Outlook rd and left up Ramu Rd.

Summary:
i don't know about the rest of the trail, but the bit from the picnic ground to the fire road below is awesome. it is super steep with tons of roots and ruts. it would be better if it were longer and it sucks to walk back up - but it's worth it! if you want a real challenge try riding it in the rain - it's insane!

Recommended Route:
as you come up the road to the picnic ground the trail goes down the hill to your left.

Summary:
Its a short little Single track that dodges and weavs through the trees, fair few drops and plenty of RUTTS. ONE downside... you have to walk up the otherside, but if you can handle it you'll have a blast. And always keep your eyes open for other trails off to the sides, there are a few good ones!!!

Recommended Route:
Well if you go to One Tree Hill park at the end of one tree hill road... follow the MAIn road around looking LEFT down the hill, there should be a water run off. its BETTER THAN BULLA... only too short???

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Just the fire trails and also THE SCARR it ROCKS... but remember to leave your brains at home if you intend on attempting the Scar
