“Excellent views”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Great track, shame that the nicer track has been closed due to the storms, you have to be relatively fit for this track, wouldn't recommend it for someone with heart conditions! The views on clear days are fantastic!

“A great walk”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

The summit walk is much better than the circuit walk. Beware all those fitness freaks who run past both going up and coming back down. The views at the top are amazing. It's only a short distance to the Mount's cafes when you return to the bottom.

“Great views”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

There is a moderate track and a steep track, as well as a track that goes around the bottom of the Mount. Footing can be diffficult on all three, but the views are worth it.

“Worth the slog!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The steps way is the quickest but a killer on unfit legs. The 4wd track is longer but has plenty of rest stops to take in the views.
