Mount Monster Summit Hike
Starting from the car park off Mount Monster Road, Keith, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Monster and back via the Mount Monster Summit Hike. This short, moderately challenging bushwalk takes walkers up to the summit of Mount Monster, an unusual granite outcrop of considerable geologic significance, offering panoramic views over the granite outcrops, natural bushland and surrounding flat farmland. The granite outcrops are surrounded by varied soil types that support diverse bushland vegetation, providing important habitat for a variety of wildlife, birds and reptiles. In spring, there are beautiful displays of colourful native wildflowers, including orchids. This loop consists of wide and narrow walking trails, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces and short steep hills, suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
