Beautiful views of Mount Barker, and great for a hike, can walk for around 2 kls, well worth a trip up there

Lovely views when you get to the top, there were lots of strange lads hanging around in their car drinking lots of beer though. The drive up the road is also a bit hard on older 2WD cars.

Amazing views of the Stirling Ranges, Porongurup Range, Mount Barker town and surrounds, plus farm, bush and if you're lucky, all the way to Albany and the ocean! The new wooden deck makes for safe viewing, you won't be disappointed.

Great views. However, not a hike for those wanting to break out a sweat. It's more of a leisurely stroll.
