Walk Description

This short but steep walk in Mount Buffalo National Park takes you up to the mountain's highest point - The Horn Lookout. At an elevation of 1,723m, you are rewarded with sensational 360° views of the Mount Buffalo Plateau and surrounding Australian Alps.

The 1.5km track starts at The Horn Picnic Area, 2km from Cresta Valley along a well maintained dirt road. The track is steep, with rocky sections and stairs.

This walk is best enjoyed in summer and autumn when the track is clear of snow. The road to The Horn Picnic Area is closed to vehicles past Cresta Valley in the snow season. During this time, the road to The Horn is groomed for cross-country skiing.
