Mount Abrupt is a 6.3km, grade 3 Return hike located in Grampians National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

Rising gradually as it heads north toward nearby Signal Peak (780 metres), the trail swings suddenly to the south-west and follows an escarpment rim toward Mount Abrupt. Once there, take in the wonderful views of the Serra Range to the north and over Dunkeld in the south. Keep an eye open for wedge-tailed eagles, nankeen kestrels and peregrine falcons.

This Mount Abrupt hike, suitable for fit and energetic walkers, can involve water crossings, slippery track surfaces, rock hopping and rock scrambling. The steep track winds its way through heathy woodland to a ridge. Follow the ridge over rock slabs and stunted montane vegetation to the summit, for one of the most spectacular views.

A large landside caused by the storm event in January 2011 badly damaged this walking track. Parks Victoria has worked hard to rebuild this track but further rain could cause movement of soil and rock over the track.

Please note the following when walking this track:

  • Sections of the Mt Abrupt walking track may be susceptible to
    Landslips
  • Rock and soil falls may occur from above the track
  • Future heavy rain events may cause further landslips and flash
    flooding in these areas
  • Do not stop in landslide hazard areas during or after heavy rain
  • Your safety is our concern but your responsibility
