Very hard and requires navigation skills. We failed to get to the Falls and had to bushbash our way out. Experience in route finding and map reading is very necessary.

Super hard!

Very challenging!

The best I’ve done so far! Super challenging but definitely rewarding- the views are amazing and definitely worth it. Be very vary of snakes.

Challenging but beautiful nature trail. It was surprisingly hard but the view on top of the cathedral rock was absolutely beautiful.

Have gone past Cathedral Ranges on the way to other places and have always wanted to hike it. Finally did it yesterday with friends, great walk, challenging in some parts but well worth the effort, Need some degree of fitness and endurance but doable for most people, Spectacular scenery and views along the top. Another hike ticked of on the bucket list

Love this hike! Top in Vic.

Awesome challenging Hike!!

Super fun rock scramble with spectacular views.

Well worth it.
Fantastic camp site.
Tough walks.
Research the walks before you go.


We hiked from cooks mill Campground to south jawbone peak via st Bernard’s trk and jawbone creek trk. Lots of stairs and a fairly decent climb all the way, Soo good though! The scenery changes over and over. Cant wait to go back and do the rest of the trails.

Top hike. It brought new challenges to me, but that’s what made it so much fun. Climbing on rocks and passing thru narrow caves makes this challenge more enjoyable. Totally worth it!

The climb to cathedral peak was a great challenge. Very few people on the trails. The view was incredible with the setting sun. Will be back soon to explore more of this incredible place.

Of note, be safe on the roads leading up to it. Pack a torch as sun sets fast in winter. Always make sure you have enough water and bring a map or compass just in case.

Top hike!

Lots of scrambling and climbing the rocks. I did southern and northern loop in 7 hours. The view was amazing but not so magnificent I would say. Few spots of missing emergency marks. I would have easily gotten lost without GPS.

Did the Wells Cave track 2 days ago and I'm already planning to go back out!
Never before have I done a hike involving rock climbing and going through a cave! Incredible! Not easy, but so worth it.

Excellent walk. Lots of rock scramble

In summer.....watch for snakes! Crazy climb up Jawbone. Even crazier hiking across the top. Views are pretty good and sides of ridge are not too dangerous. However, definitely not for children. I wouldn’t attempt the full circuit in one go as is quite arduous unless you are fit or experienced. Have good shoes and plenty of water in summer as the heat seems to sit on the backside of the mountain.

loved the hike, pretty hard. Especially up sugarloaf peak, lots of climbing - challenging and a little scary!

Completed southern loop. Sugarloaf peak via Canyon wells. Gorgeous views up at the peak looking north over the razorback ridge line. Quiet a difficult grade (4) climbing up canyon wells. Not recommended for the average joe. Due to the rock face climb. If up for a challenge, definitely put it on the cards.

We completed the two jawbone peaks walk. Started from the Cooks mill carpark and had a quick bite to eat up at the farmhouse. All in all the walk was very achievable. It was a good walk to attempt for your first walk. The views atop of the two jawbone peaks are amazing. Took us about 4 hrs roundtrip to complete.
