Starting from the car park at the end of Devil's Peak Road, Quorn, this walk leads to Devil's Peak via the Devil's Peak Walking Trail. Devil's Peak is just under 700m high and formed pound quartzite approximately 700 million years ago. When looking at the Peak from Quorn, it was said to look like the face of the Devil lying back looking towards the sky, hence the name. Along this walk, you can observe many great examples of geological faults, discover fossil impressions of ancient lifeforms, and see a variety of native fauna and flora. There's some scrambling as you near the top, so it is best suited for fit and experienced walkers. 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.
Warning This journey requires significant bushwalking experience, specialised equipment and navigation skills. Please ensure you and your group well prepared and equiped for this journey.
