Length: 2km+ one way - Steep Uphill!

Elevation Gain: 207m

Time: 1-2 hours

Special Features: The viewpoint at the peak of Mount Erskine (436 meters) is one of the island’s most spectacular. Fairy doors can also be spotted throughout the Park.


With steep climbs, extensive views and hidden surprises, the hikes up Mount Erskine are well worth it. There are three main trail heads:

  1. Colins Road (The Assault Route!)
  2. The end of Juniper Road (Trustees Trail)
  3. From Toynbee Road (details coming soon)

BE ADVISED: Some of the trails ascends very steeply and there can be loose rocks. We do not recommend these trails with young children.
