Rocky hike but fun to do. Pretty steep and can be slippery. Stunning views.

Enjoyable walk with fantastic views. Found the track easy to follow. Went on a weekday during school holidays so it was a bit busy.

This was our first long hike with young kids in tow. The toughest was Grand canyon which was steep/ uphill and near the start. We almost turned back to the car park after Grand Canyon however hiking with another family with young kids helped keep the momentum. Silent street was the highlight. It was an accomplishment just getting to the top and came back down with wombly legs.

The walk up to the pinnacle from the Halls Gap Caravan Park via Venus Baths and Wonderland Carpark is about 5.5km of fairly steep climbing and lots of rock scrambling. Highlights were the tea coloured baths and the "silent street" rock ravine - although not much social distancing happening. Then approx 4km down to Halls Gap from there - very steep decline - beware jelly legs!!!

Did this with my kids (early teens). Was a challenging trail, but very worth it. Amazing view, a lot of track variation in terms of walking surface and surrounds. beautiful elevated views, amazing rock formations. Beautiful waterways to explore at the start of the trail. We are keen to repeat this one again.. perhaps for time :)

Mostly a moderate difficulty trail with lots of rocky terrain. Some harder sections which were steeper. Pay attention to the yellow markers as it can be difficult to see the track in some sections.

The walking tracks where great, full of rocky steps and amazing views. Best to attempt in the dry, not hard when dry.

Beautiful! I went just after sunrise, which meant I got the trail and views to myself for a little bit.

Don't risk it, wear shoes with serious traction and grip. Better than average ones, as the moss on the slippery rocks will put you at risk especially at some unexpected junctures. The track is great for moderate hikers eager to up and their game a bit. One of the better hiking tracks in Victoria

Hiking

For experienced hikers, I would rate this as easy difficulty. I hiked this trail in Winter with wet conditions - the track is safe in rain, with no part of the track on steep cliffs, however rocks get slippery at the top even with hiking boots. While some arrows on track have worn off, the path is obvious and easy to follow. Such a rewarding hike, I went from the Wonderland Carpark through the Canyon to the Pinnacle Lookout. If going in winter take weather proof gloves.

love coming to the Halls Gap/Grampians to do this walk. Absolute treat getting up to the pinnacle on a clear sunny day. Cold at the top so make sure you rug up
