Description

A short and mostly level walk with extended views over the Channel region. Milles Track is one of the less used tracks in Wellington Park and so this is a good choice of walk for people seeking a more solitary experience.

From The Springs a series of stone steps climbs steeply up to the junction of the Pinnacle Track and Grays Fire Trail. Turn left and follow the fire trail for a short distance before turning onto Milles Track. This track contours around the slope to the lookout located on a rock scree slope. Retrace your steps to return to The Springs.
