Hard track
Starting from Griffin Picnic Area, Bornes Hill, this trail takes you to Dunkeld Town, visiting Signal Peak, Mount Abrupt, Mud-Dadjug Hike-in Campground, Mt Sturgeon and volcanic plains along the way. This is the last of the six segments of the Grampians Peaks Trail. The beginning of the walk offers you a wide selection of spectacular wildflowers, such as orchids, heaths and bush pea species. After you're done with the steep ascent to Signal Peak and savour the panoramic views from the top, you will descend with the eucalyptus surrounding you. When you finally reach the peak of Mount Sturgeon, you can enjoy the otherwordly view of the volcanic plains. Before you reach the end of this great walk, you'll get a glimpse of the past through the volcanic formations that date back to the Upper Paleolithic period (22,000 years ago). Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
