Must see spot if in Orange. Great Views see for miles & miles. Great sunset. Walking tracks. Dirt roads out the back for the more adventurous.

I think its the highest point locally at around 1300m - great 360 degree view - my wife runs there from the town. Very steep final 2km's on narrow sealed road. There are toilets up the top but not much else.

Great views at the top of Orange and surrounds. Picnic area there too and walks to do if you want. Lots of wineries in this area too.

Wonderful sunset, definitely worth a drive up to the top and enjoy the changing colours of the sky in West as well as east.
