We drove to the Mt Pilot car park then climbed to the summit for spectacular 360 degree views. But hang onto your hat, strong winds will happily remove it for you! There is a fire lookout tower at the top and a brass directional plaque pointing to various distant landmarks. The climb to the summit is not hard, but it... More

Nice park, make sure to head to Woolshed Falls and Mt Pilot. Lots of history around the Magenta Mine area. White box walk is worth the time as well

Not far off the road along a dirt track was a parking area then a steep walk towards to the top of the mountain with wonderful all round views, worth a trip to see the view.

Lovely spot for a picnic and a bush walk, bit of a climb up the rocks to the top but well worth it for the view and the peace and quiet. Lots of wildlife about.

It is quite a pleasant drive through the Forest to reach the Caves. They are great to explore but you must be careful.

This park has a deserved reputation for bird-watching. We spent a very pleasant day roaming around the honeyeater picnic grounds and other spots finding plenty of wildlife. The website has plenty of good information and you can pick up brochures etc in Chiltern. We'll be back for a more thorough exploration. All the roads we saw we ok for 2... More

Easy access, 2 wheel drive car, unsealed road in very good condition. Lovely walk trail to the summit- only 300m from the carpark. Picnic area by carpark. Worth the drive from Beechworth.
