Gordon's Knob (1592m) is a peak on the Gordon Range in Mt Richmond Forest Park.  It is an 11km return trip from Inwoods Lookout, likely to take 6 to 7 hours.  The walk is reasonably challenging through tussock and scree, with a 600m climb.  This is an alpine route and exposed.  The track is relatively rough in parts and a route is followed up to Gordon's Knob after leaving the main track.  Great views from the top on a good day over the Red Hills. 

To get to Inwood Lookout: head south from Nelson along State Highway 6. Just past Belgrove turn left onto Wai-iti Valley Road (the main road to St Arnaud from Nelson). The turnoff to Inwood Lookout (Wai-iti Road) is approximately 11 km from Belgrove. Allow 45 min to reach the Wai-iti Road turnoff from Nelson. The forestry road to the lookout, Wai-iti Road, is steep and rough, so a 4WD vehicle is recommended. Follow the orange DOC triangle markers along the road as it heads beneath the power pylons and climbs the pine-forested range to the car park at Inwood Lookout.
