Summary

This short loop through open forest encircles the summit of Mt Granya. There is an attractive outlook. The area fire watch tower is situated at the very top.

Description

This high summit space atop Mt Granya offers a view and a remote forest experience. It is in open woodland dominated by Red stringy-bark and Long-leafed box eucalypts. These and their understory are home to a wide range of bird species.

The area's fire watch tower is situated here. It is manned during summer as part of network of observation posts across the state.

Most people will manage this trail. It is quite short. The walking is fairly easy even though the track has not been engineered in any way. The ground can be uneven. Because it loops the summit there are no significant gradients.

The Lyrebird Loop is a narrow bush trail identified by trail markers. There is a directional sign at its beginning. This sign also marks the beginning (or end depending on whether you are walking up or down) of the 5km Mt Granya walking track to Cotton Tree Creek at the bottom of the mountain. Make sure you keep your eyes open for the second directional sign where the two tracks deviate.

Free camping is available. The site offers a picnic bench, fire pit, long drop toilet and tap with non potable water.

Dogs are not permitted in Mt Granya State Park.
