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.
