Hiking around Mt Cole, Western Victoria

Mt. Cole is an 828m volcanic flat-topped forested peak, in the south eastern section of the Mt Cole State Forest, 180 km west of Melbourne.

On January 20, 2008 we completed an 8 km hike around the southern flank of the mountain, along the Ditchfields Rd, Frees Point Rd, and the South Boundary Track.

Unfortunately, most of this hike was in thick fog, and the views were limited.

The highest point we reached was 629m, from our starting point on the main Mt Cole Rd of 463m.

This part of the Forest is very rugged, containing many old logging tracks, some of which are not shown on any maps and unsigned.

Photos of the trip!
