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.

Summary

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.

Getting there

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.

The Region

The Mt Hotham area was affected by bushfires in February 2013 and this area of the Alpine National Park was closed as at 15 February 2013. It is essential that you check the Parks Victoria website for the latest information and details on park and track closures prior to visiting this area.
