Great on a sunny day, as you are walking in the forest most of the time.
You can park at the start of the track, near the highest point on Medlands Road between Medlands Beach and Tryphena.
The track starts nice and flat on an old farm road, then rises steeply towards the top of Station Rock, only 170m from the carpark.
Take your time, it is not far to the top. The views are stunning and a great reward for a short climb through beautiful native forest.
At the top, turn left to the lookout, where you can enjoy views south and west across Tryphena, as well as stunning views north and east across beaches of Medlands and Kaitoke.
If you’re keen to do more, head up the new Station Rock track towards Rosalie Bay Road. This stunning ridgeline trail, connects all the way to Medlands Beach via the Kowhai Valley Track or Mulberry Grove via Rosalie Bay Road. You can go all the way, or just have a look around and turn back!
