This walking route is an alternative to the easy Summit Walking Trail. You can begin this trail from the Summit Fire Track, or from the carpark at the summit. If starting from the summit carpark, the trail starts from the large boulder in the first area of the carpark.

The trail is easy to follow, and provides views to the east and west.

Extend the Hike

You can extend this hike by also walking to the summit of Mt Barker on a 500 metre return trail.
