Mount Loch (1887 metres) affords impressive views of the High Plains, Mount Hotham and the rugged east face of Mount 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 Mount Loch. Return by the same route.
