Ventured out there today but struggled for a bit to find my way around or figure which trails are which and what direction I should be heading. A lot of potential for a good set-up if it gets the green light and legalised. Was starting to have fun until a stick bent my RD.
There is a very good map from Feathertop Maps, Dandenong Ranges, ref. #6722. It has most tracks (by name) and contour lines. The tracks are usually signposted so with the map you can pretty much figure out where you are.
We live not far from there and ride the tracks every now and then. (Our kids learnt to drive a manual car on the dirt roads around Silvan dam, fishtailing a 4wd ute was a lot of fun).
Looking online it seems that the map is out of print, http://mapsbookstravelguides.com.au/dan ... feathertop.
I have a copy so maybe something can be organised for who is interested.
