We did this walk in two hours in the heat. A lovely benched track with the part from the Saddle onwards blessed with great views. What a treat it'll be when the Grampian Peaks Track of which this will form a part is completed!!

This walk was just a little bit harder than Mt Sturgeon, but still doable for an individual of medium fitness levels. The views were incredible at a number of different spots along the track. Well worth a visit.

2.5hrs of steady walking to get up and back and including 10mins rest at top. Lovely mix of walking through scrub and over rocks, many glimpses along spine of Grampians and over town of Dunkeld. No scrambling involved but might get slippery in the wet....More

if you are looking for a good challenging climb, this is the place to be. It's easy to find the path and stick to it, but it can be slippery as there are a lot of bare rock surfaces. Definitely a must do!

I would definitely recommend this hike. I was not as fit last year when we took this hike as a spare of the moment decision on our last day in the Grampians last year. It is a fairly strenuous hike, but can be done if...More

The Southern tip on the Grampians. Mt Abrupt is a beautiful sight and can be enjoyed from nearby Dunkeld. If in the area, go and enjoy the wonderful views.

This is true bushwalking and scrambling over rocky parts. Not much respite on the way up and some rock surfaces could be dangerously slippery in wet weather, suggest pick a good weather day. Many good views along the way so even if don't make it...More
