Mt. Abrupt Walk


In general the Southern Grampians walks are tougher than those of the Northern Grampians, and this walk is no exception, as it has a return distance of 6.6 km  and a elevation gain of 480m. Certainly tough but not that bad, as we completed it.  At the start of the walk, the rock towering above you is not Mt Abrupt and the peak that you see most of until halfway through the climb is Signal Rock.  Looking north allows you to see the imposing Signal Rock and the Grampians Range as it fades into the distance.  This is a journey, as spectacular views can be enjoyed along the way, not just when you reach the peak of Mt Abrupt.  Try it, it's worth a go.
