Little Cathedral Walk (Cathedral Range State Park)

This short but challenging walk offers spectacular views from the ridge and the lookout at Little Cathedral Peak. Heading north from Neds Saddle, the 1.2km rocky trail begins in the forested slopes east of the range, leads up to the exposed Ridge Track, and on to the summit of Little Cathedral Peak (825m elevation). The Grade 4 track is rough and has some steep sections and obstacles. Some bushwalking experienced is recommended.

Visitor Tips: The trail includes some exposed ridge walking, where there is little shelter. Check the weather conditions before setting out, and allow plenty of daylight to complete your walk. Weather conditions can change quickly up on the range, so be well-equipped and wear appropriate clothing, and wear sturdy hiking footwear. Carry sufficient water to stay hydrated (there are no natural water sources on the trail). Phone signals are unreliable – hikers should consider carrying a radio or personal locator beacon, and don’t forget to communicate your intentions to friends or relatives before setting out. Download the Visitor Guide for more advice on safe and enjoyable walking in Cathedral Range State Park.
