Very challenging
Starting from the Mount Gnomon car park on Ironcliffe Road, Penguin, this walk takes you past Mount Gnomon and Mount Dial. Enjoy a pleasant walk that weaves through a tall eucalypt forest, taking in two low peaks in the Dial Range. After a short but steep climb up Mount Gnomon, you'll emerge at the edge of a cliff with excellent views towards Mount Duncan and the cities of Ulverstone and Devonport. The trail continues along the ridge towards the exposed cliff of Mount Dial, ending with a short boulder scramble that rewards you with views over the surrounding farmland, the southern Dial Range and towards Mount Roland. Small native orchids can be spotted along the trail, particularly at higher elevations. Take care and supervise children near the unprotected cliff edges. 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.
