Comments

The 4WD track is quite flat, (around half way) then it gets quite step and rocky. The mine/well is pretty cool and definitely quite deep if you drop a rock in it. The view from the look out is worth the walk alone.

You can reach this Mountain from a few different sides, Cristal Creek Rd and Blacks Rd, Willow Vale are two other access points. There are a number of fire trails, more mine shafts and an abandoned mining camp in the area to discover as well, Its a nice area and close to civilization.
