Starting from the end of Westlake Drive, The Leap, this return walk takes you to The Leap Lookout via a track along the creek bed, exploring the dense woodland of Pioneer Peaks National Park along the way. Involves rock scrambling/hopping. As you go through the forest and traverse the steep dirt tracks and boulders, you may question your decision to do this hike. But as soon as you get to the top and be rewarded by the extraordinary views over the land, that doubt will leave its place to admiration. Along with the views, you’ll be met by eye-catching rock formations and daunting cliffs as well. Savor the views and enjoy the peaceful ambiance as you catch your breath. On your way back, you can motivate yourself by imagining the ice-cold beer provided at the pub nearby. This track requires a decent level of fitness and sturdy shoes. Also, bring layers of clothing to protect yourself from the windy and cooler weather conditions at the top. Keep an eye out for snakes and ticks. Avoid the track in wet conditions as it gets slippery and dangerous. 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.
