HikingGreat!

We parked in Tilba and started the walk from the back of the cafe La Gallette. A steady incline the entire way up. Relatively easy track to follow, bit rocky and uneven ground with a lot of shade the entire way. We did this in 27 degrees and didn't notice the heat. Probably not great for those with bad knees. Good fitness required. No view at the top and only small amounts on the way up. The rain forest is so pretty though. Saw a red belly black on the way down.

The steady incline begins as soon as you cross into the Gulaga walking track, and gradually increases in steepness the closer you get to the summit. The rainforest walk to the summit is spectacular as are the rock formations along the way. Not much of a view from the top, but definitely worth the journey. Took about 3 to 4 hours round trip at a fast pace. I’ll definitely be hiking again.

HikingGreat!

Walking uphill for around 75 minutes, but worth it as the rainforest had so many beautiful things to look at. Such a pretty spot. The view through The Valley is lovely. No clear path to summit but doable and worth the gems you find, such as orchids and beautiful mossy rocks which look like seats. I thought it was all rather pretty. Was very cold at the top because we went up early and we were among the mist, which made it look enchanting. Btw I did come home with a leech, no big deal though.

Not sure why this is called closed. Perfectly doable hike, very clear track to the saddle. Steep but not crazily so. The rainforest track to the summit is flatter until the last 100m of vertical or so. Then it gets steep and one of those trails you have to be able to ‘see’ as it’s not as obvious. Can certainly get to the summit. 5hr round trip is pretty much right. Great hike if you like going uphill.

Lovely rainforest track... be mindful of leeches on the way ... full tracks and hiking boots recommended... the track is closed but we still did the hike as we were advised it was safe to do so... but the track was overgrown with bushes at one point and we had to descend before reaching the top.

Great walk, challenging. 3hrs up and back. Final ascent the best part of walk. Approx. 6.84km from Tilba Tilba tea room car park to summit.

Great trail, but walk out to the summit is tough. I’d suggest more than moderate difficulty, but perhaps I’m a bit soft!

Great half day hike from Tilba central. Relentless climb to the summit but worth it.

We took to the trail on a very windy day which kept flies away and the temperature down. It’s a relentless climb to the saddle, with some false hope before the pitch to the summit. Views are limited but amazing when you get them, but the highlight for us were the granite tors close to the saddle, which we persevered on finding. The downward slog sounds easy, but hard on the (older) knees. Glad we did it, but won’t be rushing back for another 4.5hr trek!

My wife I hiked this 3 years ago while down that way, can only judge it on extreme fog early in the morning! It’s on our bucket list to go back for some clear skies

Good cardio hike - lots of trees - view from the top lacking, but some nice views on the way up. Nice hike.

A pretty rainforest trail with a long but steady incline to the summit. Plenty of opportunities to spot some Australian wildlife (including wallabies), plus the occasional view of Tilba and surrounds. It took us around 3.5 hours return trip but could take anywhere up to 5 depending on your pace, fitness levels and how many breaks you have. Other details: the starting point from Tilba Tilba is located near La Galette French Cafe and the Tilba Nursery. There is one toilet on the track right before the Rainforest Summit footpath (about 2 hours away if you’re starting in Tilba Tilba).

Beautiful hike, the track loops through a rainforest nearing the summit which is amazing. The aboriginal rock formation is worth the side track; track starts near the toilet

First to Review

Easy walking on a 4WD trail, except for the last section which is on a steep foot trail. No view from the top, but the Aboriginal site is worth the short detour. https://hikingtheworld.blog/2017/01/05/mt-dromedary-gulaga/
