Pretty standard short Trail. Easy enough with a dog providing they can jump and are agile enough on rocks. 360 degree views of the ranges are good.

this was a great walk with good views of the bay. not to busy midweek.

Nice little hike. Fun to do with kids.

Super nice trail. First bit is nice and rough, last bit has lots of little birds to listen to and search for. I think it’s medium-hard

Did this trail with teenage kids today in glorious late autumn sunshine. The 'west' part of the trail is a little more challenging than the saddleback and branding yard part but it was fine for anyone with moderate fitness. The kids loved the rocky scramble parts. A great walk not too far from Geelong.

Great trail for hiking and trail running. Midweek, early mornings are the best time to do this trail. Weekends tend to be quite busy.

I didn’t personally like this trail very much. It was very very busy. Lots of people (loud people) and the views weren’t very interesting. It’s probably a beginner level hiking path to get a feel for it. For anyone else, I’d skip it.

Dog friendly trail/park. Dry-sandy a bit rocky sort of terrain. 1.5-2 hours loop walk depending of how often you stop for photos. Try to spot the eagle rock formation while you hike. Gorgeous view over the You Yangs.

Great loop to do in both directions. Get a nice bit of elevation, some variance in trail but not really technical. Nice views, descent on big hills can be a bit slippery. If you want to run on weekends I suggest getting there early as it gets quite busy.

Highly recommended, be aware many steep inclines with loose footing. Excellent views and wildlife to be seen. Loved the experience and found the walk challenging and enjoyable. Not one for beginners.

It was a decent hike up to the peak. Recommended for anyone and got a great view at the top awaiting you as a reward.

Beautiful easy to moderate hike up to the top in 35c heat. Trail mainly gravel and can be slippery at times if rushing and not concentrating. Rocks and boulders scattered all around trail. Not much shade on track, so for best shade go off track. 360c Views are magnificent. Can see the beach in the distance and wedge tailed eagles soaring over hills.

fairly easy quick hike.

Great easy trail, our dog loved it too. Completed in 1 hour with a fast pace.

Not a very interesting trail. I prefer a bit more of a bushwalk.

It was my first time hiking and I was able to complete all three loops. I have moderate stamina and strength. Highly recommend

Easy walk with nice views at the top on Flinders Peak. Also some small rocks to climb on too.

Easy tack to follow for some nice views.

Good walk. Completed with a 7 and 11 year old. Children enjoyed it

Great walk and stunning views of greater Geelong and Melbourne.

A nice easy hike specially in late September, early October when the wildflowers and canola fields are in bloom.
