Overall rating
  • this was a great walk. Several areas of loose scree but decent sized rock and quite secure under foot. The hike is always going up but the slope is gentle for the most part and the last kilometre (ie north path) is an easy walk through bushland with no drop offs on either side.
    At the top there are benches to picnic and rest on and there are some distant views of Spencer’s gulf through the trees in places, but it is the overall beauty of the walk and the views from the path that are standouts.
    I went on a 19C sunny day and found the going easy enough but energising. I’m a fit hiker but I am 70 – so younger hikers should be able to match my 1hr 30 minutes each way with the monument as starting point
