Things to see and do
There is a walking track to the summit, which leads through the forest and past interesting volcanic formations. The walk winds through manna gum and Blackwood forest and past impressive volcanic features including a lava canal and tumulus and featuring a scoria zone at the summit. The walk takes about 30 minutes one way, the distance to the top being about three kilometres.

They are part of a lava flow stretching out 24 kilometre from Mount Napier to Mount Eccles and contain wrinkles, stalactites and stalagmites, columns and ropy lava. Only one cave, Hartmans 1, is open to the public. Please remember to wear appropriate footwear and clothing and take a torch.
