Originally a hikers track, but bikers like it too. Nowadays, it is more like a multi-use track. As the name suggests, the path follows the ridge of the Great Dividing Range. Three stretches of the trail start in Daylesford: Lerderderg Track (80 km), Wallaby Track (92 km) and Dry Diggings Track (55 km). The Leanganook Track (58 km) is connected to the Dry Diggings Track. All tracks run through what used to be an important gold mining region. The trail offers relatively easy walking: it passes through populated areas, accessible state parks and farm lands. You'll find gum trees, echnidas, wallabies. Part of the trail is also called the Goldfields Track.
