The Cathedral Range is a spectacular seven kilometer ridge of sharply upturned sedimentary rock. A variety of walking tracks ranging in difficulty from easy to challenging offer the opportunity to explore the park’s main features and climb the peaks to enjoy views of the forests and farmland in the valley below.

It’s one of the hardest hikes in Cathedral Range which needs proper hiking boots and fit body. My first climb was on September under heavy rain and extreme wind and thunder storm at the Sugerloaf Peak. Breath taking views at the top and extreme rock formations. Always follow the orange signs! Especially when getting close to the peak. Not recommended in rainy condition as it’s very steep near the peak which tricky specially when descending from the peak.

very challenging walk in parts and had to take different routes as didn't have the rock climbing skills to get over sugarloaf peak. with a short detour though we still managed to walk along the mountain top where the views were spectacular

first attempt to climb. very rocky and steep. good hiking boots recommended and good fitness. will definitely do it again. the viees at the top is all worth the effort to get there.

Very hard to do in one hit. Phone went flat on walk back to car.

Hard trail. Lost the track a few times. Definitely worth the views.

My trek was only on the North Jawbone Trail (photograph the sunrise at Nth Jawbone Peak). Had a Camera/Backpack/Tripod. Went uphill first, then downhill. Uphill was quite the burner on the body, but downhill was using the legs as shock absorbers, as its easy to gain speed on the rocky steps.Happened to catch a glimpse of a Lyrebird in the bush.

We did this hike on the 08th of June. The Neds Gully Carpark cross over suspension bridge was closed for repairs. We had to go through the counter clock direction via Cooks Mill and then to the North Jawbone Peak. We did this with 4 Children and an Infant and it was well worth the views. The route had plenty of traffic and we welcome that so the children could take breaks while making way to the other hikers. The Last push to the summit at North Jawbone Peak is a bit tricky but if a 5-year-old child can make it then anybody can, I hope.

Definitely challenging but well worth it as the views at the top are indescribable. Loved the sense of adventure and can't wait to go back and explore

A nice trail. I did this, but from Cook's Mill campground. Was lucky enough to see a lyrebird mating ritual on the way back. I shall be returning to the area to hike more in the future.

Awesome trail! Hard going with lots of scrambling on the way up and loose rock on the way down!

A great day walk. Reasonably well trafficked with some solid ascents and decents. You are rewarded with a really fabulous ridge hike along the length of Cathedral Peak with amazing views. It’s the equal of the Sugarloaf walk just a touch to the south. Watch for wallabies and lyre birds. We loved it and will be back. Took us just a touch over 4 hours.

Great workout hike. Views of the farmland are nice. The ridge portion requires the ability to be light on your feet after climbing 1000 meters.

Challenging but rewarding trail, can be slow going with rocky areas.
