This trailhead is at the Winton Southbound roadside rest area and leads walkers on a 10 minute return walk to Day's Lookout which provides good views of the surrounding area.
The track starts beside a large gazebo which provides cover for four free barbecues and four picnic tables. There are also toilets and rubbish bins nearby.
Winton Southbound roadside rest area has room for several dozen cars and car-caravan combinations on one side, and a separated area large enough for at least a dozen semi-trailers and B-Doubles on the other side.
During public holiday periods a 'Driver Reviver Station' is set up nearby, and connects to power in one of the barbecues. In the second photo you can see the BBQ door open and cables running out - this is the source of the power where the State Emergency Service plugged in for their 'Driver Reviver Station'. This is just one of several hundred 'Driver Reviver Stations' operating in Victoria over Easter, manned by the members of every Community Service Organization in the state. The other states operate similiar programs.
