Neds Peak Walk


Neds Peak Walk

This short steep track climbs 250m from Neds Saddle through higher altitude forest up to Neds Peak, featuring a number of obstacles along the way. On the return, you can continue down Neds Gully Track, or up to the Cathedral or Little Cathedral Tracks to the main range.

The Grade 4 track takes about 15 minutes (one way) but has limited signage and becomes less clearly defined near the summit. Take care to stay on the track and keep an eye out for the orange track markers (a topographic map and compass or GPS device is recommended). A good level of fitness and some bushwalking experience is required.

Visitor Tips: Check the weather conditions before setting out, and allow plenty of daylight to complete your walk. The weather on the range can change quickly and there is no shelter, so ensure you are well-equipped, and wear appropriate clothing including 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.
