Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers

Approach

From Bellfield Settlement, cross Fyans Creek just below outflow from Lake Bellfield. Take walking track up towards Little Joe Hill as far as quarried terraces above dam wall. From top right corner of terraces follow foot track southeast to join four-wheel-drive track heading southeast above lake. Follow this track until it crosses a creek in the bed of the gully which has long, steep hill on its north side. Continue for 200m, then turn off left (northeast) and head uphill through light scrub for 250m to escarpment with prominent tower at its right end.

Ethic inherited from Halls Gap Area
