The 4 Peaks Bright Alpine Climb run up Mystic Hill on Saturday, 4 November 2017 is on the first day in a series of four trail runs.
The series is held on Melbourne Cup weekend every year, and has been run continuously since 1979. The climbs are not easy but are well within the reach of reasonably fit people.
Starting in Wandilligong, participants leave the Alpine Park via Grenville's Rd, turning right and beginning a winding climb into the pine plantations and toward the approach of the summit of Mystic Hill from the East.
Upon reaching the summit and traversing the launch pad, participants head south along Water Reserve Track which climbs another 120m over the next 2km. Participants then turn left in a very steep descent back down to the pine plantation where the course levels out and they wind their way back to the finish.
