Tackle a scramble up the steep slope of Flat Rock, where you can take a break on the rocky slab and enjoy views of a spectacular natural ampitheatre. The walk to the top of Flat Rock is great for energetic families.
Continue past the impressive Taipan Wall and see if you can spot any avid rock climbers trying to conquer the sheer rockface. Keep your eyes peeled for the world's fastest bird–the peregrine falcon–in the cliffs. Look out over Mt Arapiles and its tiny neighbour, Mitre Rock.
Experienced and fit hikers will enjoy the strenuous walk to the summit of Mt Stapylton. Not for the faint-hearted, the steep trek involves rock hopping and scrambling. When you reach the isolated rocky masses at the top, you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Grampians National Park and surrounding plains.
Climb down from the summit and continue the loop walk as it passes water-etched rock terraces and descends into dense scrub before returning to the campground.
