Hanging Rock Summit Walk
Time 1hr Distance 1.8km (loop) Grade- Easy-Medium
This is another lovely stroll which you can do at Hanging Rock. I would suggest doing it together with the Base Walk to really get a 'feel' for this interesting place. To begin the walk, walk up to the discovery centre. Here you can get an interesting glance of the history and legend attached to this place. The walk starts at the top of the centre and it is well marked.
Make your way up the hill and take the time to admire the beauty of the surrounds. About a quarter of the way up you will have a choice of continuing up the ramp or steps. We took the steps and came down the ramp which allowed us to take in all the views available on the walk. Continue to follow the now increasingly steep (but not overly difficult) path toward the summit. about 3/4 of the way to the top, the well formed track ends and you need to navigate by following the blue arrows.
Upon reaching the summit you are presented with some amazing views of the Macedon area. Take your time to take in the beauty before coming down the rock again by the opposite way you came up.
