From Fox Dam, following the track you reach Montacute Road, from where you need to turn back and  climb Hikers’ Hill (Chapman’s track). You will end up at the intersection with Moores Track , Rocky Hill track completing the first loop.  Turning left, take Centre track for a short distance and  then Pylon Track and via Third Falls you will return to the car park.

Good level of fitness is required as the track is classified hard and involves steep hills down and up.

Hiker’s hill is one of the steepest and hardest in the area, but you can  stop as many times required. The challenge will be rewarded in the end with great scenery and accomplishment of a hard walk.  The ice cream van was a nice surprise at the end.
