A favourite with the locals due to its proximity to the Mansfield township and the good cardio workout it offers, this walk is rewarded with 360 degree breathtaking views of the valley including; Lake Eildon, Mansfield, surrounding farmland and the mountain ranges, including Buller, Stirling and Timbertop.

Water, energy snacks and a windcheater are recommended. It is steep and at times gravelly and is exposed to the elements as the 4WD track through the valleys are grassy rather than gum tree (bush) vegetation.

The kangaroos are numerous and the sights and smells are unique of the countryside.

Approximately three hours including travel time.
