About this hike

There are tons of day hikes around Melbourne but Sugarloaf Reservoir stands out as a great location because it is in the goldilocks zone of hiking, not to far to travel from the centre of the city but you still get the feeling like you are in the bush. This makes it perfect for families and first time hikers as they can get a feel for hiking with out needing all the gear, this location is also amazing for kids as it is not too long or steep meaning they can do the walk without getting too tired until the drive home.
