the world's most spectacular roads

Billy Goat Bluff trail is a challenging 4wd fire trail located in the Alpine National Park, in Victorian High Country, Australia. Ascending 1,200 metres in only 7 kilometres, this steep track edged with cliff faces is known as one of the tougher climbs in the high country.

The trail climbs up to the tip of The Pinnacles. The steep rocky parts are insane. Never try it on bad weather. It offers a challenging rocky incline that is not for those new to 4WDing. The track can be quite narrow in places and it can be challenging to pass oncoming vehicles so radio communication is crucial.

  

If you dare to take the risk and travel along this dusty and bumpy route, then make sure to be driven by someone who has experience of the road. The surface of the road is rocks, stones and gravel. It offers scenic views and a mixture of driving conditions including some steep grades and rocky sections. Allow at least one hour on the way up. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking and it is well worth the drive. The pinnacles lookout provides amazing panoramic views of this rugged area.

  

Due to the remoteness of the area, take special care to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the trip. The track at times is refreshed and some sections become slippery when wet. Allow 1 hr each way. It’s one of the Australia’s steepest continuous descent of about 5km dropping from 1450m asl to the valley floor near Dargo at about 400m asl.
