Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hard, challenging walk from Wonderland car Park but worth every second of effort. Walking with 14yr, 11yr and 5yr old kids that are reasonably seasoned bushwalkers. Wouldn’t attempt it with kids under 8 yrs if you don’t walk often.
Be prepared and take the right gear. Wear walking boots as the surface is very uneven.
4km walk took 5hours with breaks and 7litres of water for 5 people in springtime.

If you want an easier walk, leave from Sundial carpark and see Silent Street by venturing down the Wonderland track 200m.

use the sundial car park as a base. the hike was exciting and exhilarating and tiresome. it is rocky, so be careful when navigating the route. there are yellow marker for the direction. at the end, it is hard to explain the excitement.

Walked with my partner, few steep parts. So long as decent level of fitness. We did it in an hour and a half.
Take it slow if wet

This has to be one of the best hikes I have ever done! The views are amazing and the path is very off track!! There is a waterfall just after half way as well.

Challenging climb but worth it in th end, definitely pack food and drinks as it’s a mission. Once you’re at the top, it’s all worth while!

Mum dad and 9yr old just ‘had to do it,.
It’s the must do walk for the Grampians. We chose to leave later in the afternoon and from wonderland car park.
Little upset the ‘Grand Canyon’ was closed but it didn’t take away from a spectacular walk.
A reasonable level of fitness and good shoes will make the walk easier, but it should be achievable for almost everyone…..just take it slow and steady.
The views from the pinnacle is what it is all about, but there is so much to see on the walk up you could spend hours just soaking it all in.
Try to avoid this one in peak times as it will get very busy.

An incredible walk. Need to be moderately fit, take water and wear decent shoes. Stunning rocks and views. Weirdly popular with “influencers “ wearing more make up than clothing

Really beautiful walk. It can be a bit strenuous on some points but if you are fit then this won't be a problem. It is never too strenuous.
The pinnacle is really the pinnacle of the walk, The views from here are unprecedented.
If you visit the grampians this is a must do if you ask me.

The last 600 metres were the longest of my life, as I believe they were measured as the crow files rather than vertically! However once reaching the summit the views over Halls Gap and beyond were extremely rewarding. We did the hike from the Sundial car park as I was advised that the alternative more difficult route included ladders.
