Rising gradually as it heads north toward nearby Signal Peak (780 metres), the trail swings suddenly to the south-west and follows an escarpment rim toward Mount Abrupt. Once there, take in the wonderful views of the Serra Range to the north and over Dunkeld in the south. Keep an eye open for wedge-tailed eagles, nankeen kestrels and peregrine falcons.
