A steep and technical climb up a narrow hand-crafted track to the northern knoll is rewarded with outstanding views across the Harcourt Valley and beyond. The knoll is a great place to enjoy a break among the huge natural rock outcrops. You may also catch a glimpse of a werpil (wedge-tailed eagle) soaring on the thermals. The challenging but playful descent features extensive granite rock-gardens and chutes that make the most of the natural terrain. Please keep to the trail alignment to avoid contact with the moss beds on the granite slabs.
