I tried this route this morning, and as garibaldi says, the climb up out of Warburton is indeed a good workout. I thought a few bits of it were perhaps steeper than Donna Buang, but fortunately it's only a few Kms of climbing then a fast descent back to the Highway.
Looking back as we climb Lala Ave (Melways map 290 D5)
and it still keeps going up
This is the view of Warburton as you climb
a walking trail
now we start downhill
till we reach here
it was a fast descent from those hills
