The Westridge Hike

Mansfield Visitor Information Centre ,175 High Street Mansfield 3722 MAP

This walk is wonderful, but not for the faint-hearted. A steep ascent to the ridgeline following a gravel path. The actual ridge itself has scrambly places and is definitely not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo or a fear of heights. The ridge drops away dramatically on both sides and is at times challenging to move along.

You will reach a rock monument where the Summit of Mt Buller can be seen in the distance, and the challenge to reach it. A rocky descent into the valley is prevalent before the last rock scrambling section is completed to ensure you feel a huge sense of achievement when finally reaching the Lookout Station situated at the top of Mt Buller’s Summit.

Approximately five hours including travel time.

From here it is a staircase descent to the bottom of the Summit ski run and a short walk, into the Village to share the experience over a well-earned coffee at the Alzburg Hotel.

Travel involves organised transfers from Mansfield to the start of the walking track. Then pickup at Mt Buller Summit/Village and return to Mansfield.

Important: This walk is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.
