Mount Loch is a 6.9km, grade 3 return hike, located in Alpine National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 2-3hrs to complete.
Mt Loch (1887 metres) affords impressive views of the High Plains, Mt Hotham and the rugged east face of Mt Feathertop. It can be reached by following the AAWT for 3.5 km to pole 60. Leave the pole line here, follow a vehicle track north past the rocky basalt columns for 0.5 km. Climb to the summit along a track on the north western side of Mt Loch. Return by the same route.
Drive to Mt Hotham via the Hume Highway, Wangaratta, Myrtleford and Harrietville. Stop at the Mt Loch carpark about 2km before the Hotham Heights village.
