Summit Loop Track - 5km loop
Fabulous lookouts are a feature of the well marked, 5km Summit Loop. Starting from the south side of the main resort car park, the track rises steeply for 200m before levelling to a gentle incline to the summit. Initially it is a wide gravel track, but beyond the summit, it is very pleasant narrow walking trail. Although predominately Snow Gum woodland, Alpine Ash (also called Woollybutts) and Mountain Hickory Wattle are also abundant.
Ski Trail - 4km loop
An easy 4km loop walk (about 90 minutes return) along Lake Mountain's ski trails with interpretative signs along the way. The walk commences from the start of the ski trails near the main resort buidlings.
Bjarne K Dahl Memorial Boardwalk
Norwegian-born Bjarne Klaus Dahl (1898 - 1993) enjoyed a long career as a forester in Victoria and was well respected in his senior positions with the Forests Commission, and later the Australian Paper Manufacturers. Bjarne had a true affinity with eucalypts and it was eucalypts that became his legacy. Predeceased by his wife Ann, and with no children, Bjarne left his substantial estate to the then Forests Commission of Victoria to advance the cause of eucalypts. In 2010, his vision was realised when the Bjarne K Dahl Trust was launched.
Lake Mountain is fortunate to be one of the first major trust beneficiaries with the establishment of the wheelchair-accessible Bjarne K Dahl Memorial Boardwalk at Snowy Hill.
Snowy Hill to Arnold Gap - 4km one way
This walk is different to others on the Lake Mountain Plateau in that it is exclusively in forested areas, ranging from Snow Gum and Alpine Ash through to wattle. The 4km one-way track leaves from the upper Snowy Hill Car Park, about 2km from the main resort precinct.
