About the Walk
The Apex Lookout offers good views of Bright and also the Alps. Involves a 350m climb (and descent).
The Walk in Detail
From the hotel, go north, crossing the Ovens River by bridge. Turn west along the Back Porepunkah Road for about 300m until the junction of the residential area and the pine forest on the north side of the road (near pylon 54). Follow a vehicle track heading generally north and east, mostly climbing, until after about 2km a five-way junction of roads is reached.
From here, follow the ridge to the east, climbing steadily until Apex Lookout is reached after about 1km. There is a good view from the lookout over Bright and to the adjacent mountains. Return to Bright along the same track.
Getting ThereDrive to Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford. Start from the Star Hotel in the centre of Bright.
The track back from the lookout is quite steep in parts.
