Highett Ridge Track, follows the ridgeline within "The Pines" area of the Eildon State Forest. It starts off easy as you steadily climb the ridge for approximately 2.75km.
Then as you reach the first peak it starts to get interesting as you clambered up a few short rock ledges (50m) with a switch back in the middle, with a little bit of water this section would be very difficult even with decent tyre and lockers.
Then for the next 2.00km its up and down along the ridge line with a few steep inclines and decents to keep it interesting. At this stage you can either continue to follow Highett Ridge Track or turn left (as we did) to get back to main road and camp.
The turn off track has a reasonable decent immediately with clay ruts and shaley rock, it the wet this section of 100m would become very difficult.
The Pines area of the Eildon State Forest provide many hill climbs of medium grade, however with a bit of rain they can be very challenging.
