The Mount Saint Gwinear Trail is a 5 mi out-and-back trail that starts and ends at the Mount St Gwinear car park within the Baw Baw National Park, Victoria, Australia.
A fairly short steady climb takes you to the summit of Mount St Gwinear which sits at 1509 metres. A relatively straightforward hiking route makes it a family-friendly choice; considered to be Easy to Medium difficulty, this mountain trail is usually completed in 2 - 3 hours.
Beautiful year-round, visitors enjoy the wildflowers in spring and snow-peaked mountains in winter, as the trail takes in native heathland, grassy plains and Snow Gum forest, leading walkers mainly along a forest track and some rocky pathed sections. Continue past the summit to the Gwinear Flat to find a wild picnic spot for lunch before heading back down to the car park.
During the winter the mountain is a snow-covered attraction for the whole family offering free entry to cross-country ski trails, toboggan runs and even snow camping.
The Baw Baw National Park has toilets (with disabled facilities), and a basic heated shelter. Dogs are not allowed in the Baw Baw National Park for the protection and conservation of the park and its wildlife.
