The walk is along sealed road - graded strenuous. It was certainly a good cardio challenge going up - but not a strain in knee joints like other walks can be. It was straight forward. The views at the top were spectacular - highly recommend

The first half of this walk is TOUGH but it does get easier past the corner with the chair on the right hand side so don’t give up. It’s also past this point where you start to see the beautiful mountain range and how much...More

Make sure you are fit; you walk to the peak from the car park - it's straight up and down. The view is worth it. Take a warm jacket as the weather can change quickly

From the car park to the top is a good walk but is a up a strong incline. Well worth the effort when you get to the top with views to Stawell/Ararat and beyond.

The walk to the summit from the carpark is about 2km, which sounds easy in theory but there is a sign warning that "strenuous" walking is required & it isn't lying! I am a relatively fit person who works out daily but this walk still...More

You can't get to the summit by car, you can only drive (about half way) to the car park....after that it's a very, very steep winding road that seems to go up, up and on and on forever - so if your are fit, it...More

Signage indicates that must be fit. An extremelly steep climb on a bitumen road. Not a great adventure on a cold or windy day. Given the ascend, on a sunny/ nice day, the view would be spectacular, no shade along the way. Go prepared.

Not that I recall. We stayed at the Pinnacle Holiday Lodge at Hall's Gap and drove to Mt William car park. It is a steep hike to the top (especially in the hot summer months) from the car park. Didn't notice much around... More
