Walks 56, 57 (Masons Falls and Andrew Hill)

Masons Falls Walk. Mt Sugarloaf is now open to the public. This includes Mt Sugarloaf, Mt Sugarloaf Road, Mt Sugarloaf Ridge Track and the park entrance area. These areas open everyday from 9:00am until 4:00pm. The walking trail (Mason Falls Circuit) and the rest of the Sugarloaf Block are still closed. Masons Falls Picnic Area will not open until late 2010.

Andrew Hill Walk. The bulk of the walk (Andrew Hill Track, Mountain Creek Track and Stringybark Tracks) is now open. Unfortunately the trail (Blackfish Way) linking The Gums Camping Area and Island Creek Camping Area is still closed. This means that the walk cannot be completed as a circuit. The Gums Camping Area, Island Creek Camping Area and Blackfish Way are not due to reopen until until late 2010.

Walk 56 (Masons Falls Circuit)

Kinglake National Park is closed due to the February 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. Approximately 98% of the park, including the office and most visitor facilities, were completely burnt.

UPDATE (April 2010): Currently all of the walking trails are closed in the park. Masons Falls Picnic Area and Mt Sugarloaf Picnic areas are also still closed (although the road to Mt Sugarloaf is open).

UPDATE (Jan 2013): The Masons Falls area has just been reopened to the public. The Masons Falls Circuit (12.6km) is not open however as the Running Creek section of the trail is still currently closed.
