Good walk but nothing spectacular. Hard to find, reviews in here helped us find it. One way is all downhill then is all uphill back. Couple of good views but again nothing overly spectacular. Nice medium walk both ways.

An opportunity to experience one of the old original roads up the escarpment. Look for the beginning (or end) of it at the bottom of Victoria Pass, and walk or cycle up to the top where it emerges on the road out to the lookout...More
