Mount Sturgeon is a 6.4km, grade 3-4 Return hike located in Grampians National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

The Mount Sturgeon hike, suitable for fit and energetic walkers, can involve water crossings, slippery track surfaces and rock hopping. Follow the path up through open woodland and view endemic montane species such as the Grampians Gum. Several steep sections lead through rocky terrain and stunted vegetation dominates as the track nears the summit. The walk provides panoramic views of the surrounding ranges and volcanic plains over Dunkeld, the gateway to the southern Grampians. Return by the same route.
