West Ridge Hike
- Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Mansfield, Vic
- Product code: PE14LD
This walk is not for the faint hearted. A steep ascent to the ridgeline following a gravel path. The actual ridge itself has scrambly places and is definitely not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo or a fear of heights. The ridge drops away dramatically on both sides and is at times difficult to move along.
We will reach a rock monument where the Summit of Mt Buller can be seen in the distance, but so is the challenge to reach it! A rocky descent into the valley is prevalent before the last rock scrambling section is completed to ensure you feel a huge sense of achievement when finally reaching the Lookout Station situated at the top of Mt Buller’s Summit.
From here it is a staircase descent to the bottom of the Summit ski run and a short walk (if you are up to it!) into the Village to share the experience over a well earned coffee at the Alzburg Hotel.
Please Note: This walk is not recommended for children under 13yrs of age.
