The Wall Cycling Climb Route, Monbulk to Olinda, Dandenong Ranges

The Wall is located on the Olinda-Monbulk Road and is a fairly challenging route give the steep and steady gradients. The Wall begins on the edge of Monbulk, a quaint town located 30 minutes from the CBD and in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges. The start point is marked right at the corner of Monbulk-Olinda road and Monbulk Road.

The route takes on the climb up the ranges all the way through to the peak located in the township of Olinda. Unlike other popular cycling routes in the region, The Wall has an overall gradual gradient, but obtained its name from the fact that it has two steep sections, giving the illusion of a wall. There is a sharp hairpin turn at about 1km in to the climb and the most difficult climb is at the 2km mark where the road hits a 10% gradient.

The ride will take you past the beautiful Cloudehill Gardens and the popular R.J Hamer Aboretum, so if making the return journey, make sure to stop by these beautiful locations on your way back.
