I have found this gem a challenging summit but only because the two times I have been up has been off-track. There is a track but I haven't been on it all the way. Awesome views of over Mt Walsh National Park and also west towards Coalstoun Lakes. Certainly some steep rocky sections and would not advise if wet or inexperienced.

Route/Trail notes

I would suggest taking the fire trail on the left as you enter the car park. Follow it down across the creek & up to the pinch on the ridge. Take the track from there that goes down into the creek. When you cross the 2nd creek look for the trail on your right in the first 20m. The original sign has rotted and start to the walking track can be overgrown and easily missed. Orange ribbons ( 3 of them ) are at the start now, should not miss it.

Great Walk. Need 4x4 or high clearance to get to Parking spot at base of the walk. The entrance to get up to the mountain is well hidden and to push through scrub to get onto track up to the mountain. It is 20m on the right after the 2nd creek. You can also do a cicuit around the ridge at the bottom of the mountain.

Amazing and So secluded. Very grateful to of gone with someone who had done it previously, so knew how to get there. Not for inexperienced walkers.

Nice hike, faint overgrown track but simply follow the orange ribbons and you'll be fine. Once you've crossed the 2nd creek look to right to notice the track. The sign has roten off it's post but some kind person stuck up a rock ( see pic attached )
