Blind Creek Trail (Wantirna South - Boronia)



The Blind Creek Trail is a shared-use path for cyclists and pedestrians, which follows the Blind Creek from the Dandenong Creek Trail in Wantirna South to the Ringwood - Belgrave Rail Trail in Boronia. The path is mostly asphalt with some minor concrete sections.

The trail runs past Westfield Knox and the Tim Neville Arboretum along its 11.5 km route.

The route
Travelling from the Ringwood - Belgrave Rail Trail to the Dandenong Creek Trail heading west, the trail begins 1.2 km north of Ferntree Gully Station, at a train line underpass on the Ringwood - Belgrave Rail Trail. This location is Melways Map: 65 Ref: A12 near the intersection of Underwood Road and St. Elmo Avenue, Boronia.

Go through the underpass past the graffiti. Traveling downhill and in a westerly direction, the trail soon passes the Tim Neville Arboretum (a great playground is here) and continues on without navigational difficulty to Scoresby Rd. It passes through a light industrial area and then follows the wall of Melbourne Water's retarding basin to the immediate north of Westfield Knox. Passing by the centre's car parks, it comes to a halt at Stud Road near Burwood Highway.

On the west side of Stud Road the path restarts by one of the many pieces of art dedicated to Hubert Opperman, that are found in the City of Knox. Head south east and pass under Burwood Highway.

After 2.2 km, the path reaches High Street Road just to the east of EastLink. Cross High St to the south, either using the pedestrian crossing or the road underpass. The latter is regularly swamped. Head left (east) to continue on the trail. Going west at High Street Road leads to the EastLink Trail on the far side (west side) of the tollway. One kilometre south of High Street Road, the Blind Creek Trail heads west and goes under the tollway and under the EastLink Trail. Continue on the path that leads to Norton Lane.

The St Pauls Missionary college should be straight ahead. Turn left (south) down Nortons Lane and pick up the trail at the end of the lane. 330m west from here is the Dandenong Creek Trail intersection. This junction is badly signed in all directions, so it pays to review this point before heading out.
