Starting from Borough Huts Campground, Bellfield, this trail takes you to Jimmy Creek Campground, visiting Seven Dials, Redman Bluff, Boundary Gap and Durd Durd along the way. This is the fourth of six segments of the Grampians Peaks Trail. As you walk along the outskirts of Mount William, you can enjoy Seven Dials, which occurred as a result of millions of years of erosion. The panoramic views of plains from Redman Bluff are delightful as well. The ending of this trail is incredibly tranquil and rewarding, allowing you to enjoy beautiful sunsets from the western side of the range. 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.
