From Pirie Street climb up a wide and mostly easy track. You'll cross the Hataitai to City track after about 0.1km, but continue up the hill for a further 0.3km.
At the marked intersection with the alternative Mt Vic Summit track branch, turn right and head up the hill. The alternative branch starts on Lookout Walkway track 0.15m to the north, and also has Lookout Scenic track veering off about one third of the way along.
Once the alternative branches merge follow the signs for about 0.25km up to the intersection of Alexandra Road and Lookout Road, including a very short section where the track coincides with Southern Mt Victoria track.
Cross the road and climb straight up a grassy knob to the pyramid shaped Richard Evelyn Byrd Memorial. From there, cross the car park and climb up either the steps or the adjacent grass to the summit look out.
