I love that there are a few ways to tackle this epic walk in the Grampians. Ranging from something relatively short and easy, up to a longer and more strenuous hike, there’s a way for almost anyone to enjoy it.
The Pinnacle Halls Gap (Starting Point from the Caravan Park)
Let’s start with the hardest option. Don’t be put off by that label though. It’s definitely the hardest route up to the lookout, but it’s far from excessive! Think: uphill most of the way, with a few more challenging inclines than the other tracks.
The Sundial Carpark to Pinnacle hike is suitable for almost everyone- young and old alike. At 2.1km you get to the top in no time at all. Again, sturdy boots are probably better. In reality though, you aren’t going far; trainers would be fine.
This is one of the most atmospheric sections of the entire track. You find yourself in a narrow gorge, with tall rock faces on either side, and feel like you’ve descended into another world. It’s very very cool.
