Corral Peak and Mahomet's Tomb is a 3km, grade 2 return hike, located in the Mount Buffalo National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 1-1.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The track climbs steadily, rising about 100m in 250m until the ridge between Le Souef Peak and The Sentinel is reached. This is a good spot to admire the ruggedness of the surroundings before dropping about 30 m and ascending the same amount to Corral Peak.

There are other tracks that can be used to explore this area. If you do not want to climb the peaks there are huge granite outcrops that can be explored by walking around and under them. From the vantage points high up there are good views to the east.

Return via the same route.

About the region

Mount Buffalo National Park has sheer cliffs, imposing granite tors, tumbling waterfalls, snow gums and stunning wildflowers. The park features over 90km of walking tracks, panoramic scenery, waterfalls and scope for adventurous pursuits such as rock climbing and hang-gliding.

Mount Buffalo is an all-seasons playground. In summer, wildflowers are plentiful and the park is a cool retreat from the heat of the lowlands. Take in superb 360-degree views from the summit of the Horn and the delightful Gorge Heritage Walk. Enjoy picnics, canoeing and camping at Lake Catani in the summer months.

In winter the park is ideal for cross-country skiing with its gentle undulating landscape, spectacular sub-alpine environment and the convenience of over 14km of marked ski trails. The park offers safe and accessible tobogganing and snow play areas, providing great fun for the whole family.

Getting there

Drive towards Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford. Take the turn off to Mt Buffalo near Porepunkah. Drive up Mt Buffalo and continue driving south (that is, take the right fork just after you reach the plateau level, the left fork goes to the chalet).

The walk start is about 6.5 km from this road fork. Once past Lake Catani, the road climbs steadily until The Cathedral is reached. The track to Corral Peak is roughly opposite.

There is an extensive parking area and also toilets (for the rock climbers who climb The Cathedral and The Hump).
