Getting There

The track is most easily accessed from Barokee campground. Follow the circuit clockwise and hike through sub-alpine woodland to the summit turnoff. At the posted turnoff, you then hike up Cathedral Rock to sit on a natural throne, perched on 200m of stacked boulders. Rock-hopping is the scientific term for what you’ll be doing for much of the next 400m as you clamber over boulders and straddle crevices. Return along the same route from the summit to the turnoff and then continue following the loop trail circuit around through a protected valley of manna gums.

Camping facilities including toilets are available at the Barokee Campground

Turnoff Waterfall Way onto Round Mountain Road - the turn is well signposted for the reserve. Stay on Round Mountain Road and then turn into Barokee Campground parking area.

So pretty, walking along the boulders and the valley floor. the scramble up Cathedral Rock itself could be challenging, but absolutely worth the view. the rest of the track is fairly easy. dirt road in is well maintained.

My 5 year old daughter & 11 year old son made it to the top. It was amazing when you’ve reach the summit.

Walking

excellent loop walk and you can climb the "cathedral" which is not easy and not for those who have vertigo but worth the effort

Awesome quick track. Doesn’t take very long to get to the top. A little bit of work for a big pay off at the top.

I did this one on way home from New England NP. Couldn’t have been more different! I didn’t do the rock scramble- yes chicken. Quite a day and rocky walk, but pretty none the less.

Great, shorter walk but with a very challenging rock scramble at the summit. Wonderful views from the top if you make it.
