Completed this morning as the 9km. It hit option linking ghost hole, powerful owl and the pinnacle track to JC Slaughter Falls picnic area and then back up the Summit Track. Great walk.

Completed this as track part of a 9km circuit - started with the Litchfield track, then the Ghost Hole Track, Powerful Owl Trail, Hovea Track and the Summit Track. A great morning out walking.

This was a lovely walk and easy to do. The track was well maintained and easily found down the road from the lookout - alongside two other walks. I expected more from the old gold mine location (relics?) as it was a picnic spot. I followed the trail back to the starting location to make it a 5 k walk and added the Honeyeater Trail to it.
