North Jawbone Peak Walk (Cathedral Range State Park)

Follow this short but strenuous walk through open woodland for some of the best rock climbing opportunities on the Cathedral Range. Keep your eyes peeled for kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and lyrebirds, and don't forget to stop and take in the fantastic views of the Little River Valley and farmland below.

The track branches from the Jawbone Creek Track just below The Farmyard and leads to North Jawbone Peak. The Grade 3 track is 700m long and around 20 minutes one-way. It has some short steep sections and a few obstacles – some bushwalking experience is recommended.

Return down the range via the Jawbone Track or make it an overnight trip, camping at The Farmyard before embarking on the Cathedral Range Northern or Southern Circuit Walks.

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.

Restrictions: Please note this trail is for walkers only (no bicycles, pets or horses).
