Description of hike

Summary: This hike is a personal favourite I put together a few years ago that takes in all of the scenic vantage points of Werribee Gorge. Commencing at Meikles Point Picnic Area, this hike explores Shelter-shed Spur, Eastern Viewpoint, Western Viewpoint, The Saddle, Falcons Lookout, Western Bluff, leaving the best till last, Pyramid
Rock.

Tips: This is a difficult off-trail hike with exposed ledges, near-vertical rock scrambles and challenging terrain.

What to bring: At least 2 litres of water, snacks, lunch, sturdy hiking shoes/boots. Hiking poles could be beneficial if you use them.

Getting there: Follow the Western Highway past Bacchus Marsh to the Pentland Hills exit (5km beyond Bacchus Marsh). At the end of the exit ramp turn right to pass under the freeway. Turn left onto Pentland Hills Road. After passing under the freeway again turn left onto Myers Road and follow it down to the Werribee Gorge State Park. Continue onto the gravel road at the end of the sealed section and follow this to its end at Meikles Point Picnic area. There is ample parking and pit toilets.

Risk and Waiver of liability Conditions of hike attendance

Trail Hiking Australia provides a 'hike at your own risk' platform. My website is simply a platform to gather outdoor enthusiasts together. I do not provide a professional guide service (Yet). The hosts who are hiking with you may or may not have CPR or first aid abilities. They are not required to have a first aid kit on them. They are not actual 'guides' but are simply creating a meeting point for all attendees to gather. All a host is promising by posting a hike in the Trail Hiking Australia calendar is that they will be at the meeting point to help everyone gather. They will also make every effort to lead and will keep the group hiking together. By joining a hike you automatically accept that you have read and agree to the waiver. Not reading this document does not excuse you from agreeing to the personal liability terms of this waiver.
