The walking trail crosses a grassy plain before entering the bush and ascending to Eliza Saddle, where there is a viewing platform. The trail to the summit is steep and rocky. The summit, an amazing granite formation, offers spectacular views over the ACT. Some scrambling/climbing is required to get to the very top - look for a high & narrow cleft between two huge boulders. Show more
