It took our group about 2 hours to leisurely walk up, enjoy the views and get back to the car.

“Panoramic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

You can see forever in all directions. A little steep for elderly but OK for fit under 70's. Spectacular views.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

A relatively easy walking track of about 30 mins uphill gets you to the summit of Mt Iron which on a clear day gives you fantastic views over the region. You can take a different route back down the other side too.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

We walked Mount Iron and were passed by many locals given it appears this somewhat challenging walk is the local fitness route. There are great mountain and lake views from the top.
