Pinnacle Track Circuit is a 10km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Grampians National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 4.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Commencing at School Road in Halls Gap the Pinnacle Track Circuit follows the Wonderland Loop Walk a short distance before reaching the Pinnacle Track on your left. From here the track steeply ascends along the face of the range and it climbs towards the Pinnacle. The trail is steep and rocky with steel staircases to assist with the climb. Along the way you will pass Mackeys Peak, Point Sunshine, Signal Peak and Relph Peak. On reaching the plateau it is then only a short distance to the awe inspiring views of the Pinnacle.

After leaving the Pinnacle head south west along the Wonderland Forest Loop and follow this trail along its length via Silent Street and the majestic Grand Canyon towards the Wonderland Car Park. Before reaching the car park turn right and follow the Wonderland Loop Walks towards Halls Gap. Take a short side trip to the soothing Venus Baths before continuing along the Venus Baths Walk back to School Road in Halls Gap.

Getting there

To get to Halls Gap from Melbourne, follow the Western Highway through Ballarat and Ararat which will start your trip along €˜The Inland Way 8′, a network of driving tours that connect much of the Grampians region. When you arrive at Stawell, you will turn left from the Western Highway into the Halls Gap Road.

Tips

The Pinnacle Track Circuit is suitable for fit walkers only. The track involves rock steps, several seasonal water crossings and some rock hopping.
