Amazing track, with forest and mountains. The track is not signed, you have to take the Devil's Pounchbowl track then go right upstair, on the sign "Aicken track". The track stop as indicated on this review with a beautiful landscape, but you can go up until the summit. Maybe 3 more km out & back, very hard and proper mountain, you have to create your own way, reward with a awesome 360 view at the top ! I needed 4h30 from the carpark to the summit, way back, but i'm a fast hiker, probably pretty much 6h out & back.
