Description

I saw people of ages from about 6 to 65 on the day I hiked.

One fit adult had his toddler in a back-pack carrier.

Quite popular with school groups.

National Park Pass required ($13AUD, 2019).

Steep incline, many constructed timber-enforced or rock steps, high exposure at the top, alpine changeable weather conditions, fabulous view for a picnic lunch in good weather.

1.5-2 hrs average to ascend.

Well-marked, well maintained track.

Large carpark fills quickly on weekends and public holidays.

Although a lot of the track is well-shaded the last 3rd is very exposed.
