The first half is quite straight forward, but the second half has many more rises and some are just bloody hard work after a day in the office.
I was taking your route from St Kilda Rd > Abbotsford > Heathmont, but found it just took me too long (near on 2hrs), and as you mention the last hilly section through Mullum Mullum is a killer.
I now do this which takes 1:30 and is around 30ks.

It's more on road than the Freeway trail, but far more direct
