The jagged ridges of the Cathedral Range offer spectacular views and some of the best hiking in the state.
Spend a night under the stars in the company of native wildlife such as kangaroos and lyrebirds. Camp by the ruins of Cooks Mill or escape the crowds at The Farmyard hike-in camping area. There are easy walks including the Friends Nature Trail and the tranquil Little River Walk.
Experienced walkers can tackle the Razorback Trail or take an overnight hike through Cathedral Range State Park. Follow the Southern or Northern Circuit through open forest and up rocky ridges for breathtaking views across the park. There are several walks to choose from to suit everyone’s fitness levels.
There's also rock climbing for beginners and experts. Practice bouldering at The Boulders or try the tricky Sugarloaf Saddle or North Jawbone. A small stand of the world's tallest flowering tree, the Mountain Ash, can be found at Sugarloaf Saddle. Some of these amazing plants approach 90 metres in height.
