It’s a relatively easy walk from the car park, 300 metres but steep. The views are fantastic. There is some nice woodland around the car park that is good for birds. The drive up is on gravel so be prepared for plenty of dust.

Well worth a visit if you're in the area. It is a 300 metre walk to the top. I would say you have to be moderately fit to get to the top. There are rough steps which have a lot of loose stones on them....More

360 views but quite underwhelmed with the views. Pretty average. Lots of small insects and mozzies even in autumn. Dont bother if you dont have much time. Walk up ok on granite steps but still puffing slightly on warm day.

Tucked away just off the main Rd and a short 300m stepped climb up to a surprising 360 degree view over all surrounding forest and farm land

We drove to the Mt Pilot car park then climbed to the summit for spectacular 360 degree views. But hang onto your hat, strong winds will happily remove it for you! There is a fire lookout tower at the top and a brass directional plaque...More

Nice park, make sure to head to Woolshed Falls and Mt Pilot. Lots of history around the Magenta Mine area. White box walk is worth the time as well

Not far off the road along a dirt track was a parking area then a steep walk towards to the top of the mountain with wonderful all round views, worth a trip to see the view.

White Box 8 km circuit walk was a great way to spend a few hrs in the bush. Lots of wild flowers and wildlife. Watching this this lace monitor was a highlight of our walk. Good picnic facilities available.

Lovely spot for a picnic and a bush walk, bit of a climb up the rocks to the top but well worth it for the view and the peace and quiet. Lots of wildlife about.

Hi Jorpra, I don’t know the answer to your question but we didn’t see any dogs whilst we were there. It’s not really trails so I don’t think it would be a good idea to let a dog roam through the bush. Regards Lizzie
