Razorback Walk (Cathedral Range State Park)

This challenging hike takes 2 hours one-way. It links Sugarloaf Peak (accessed via the Wells Cave or Canyon Tracks) with the Farmyard Camping Area, passing through small pockets of bushland and crossing exposed rocky outcrops with impressive views of the forested farmland and valleys below. The track is part of the Cathedral Range Southern Circuit and can be combined with the Northern Circuit for a longer hike with an overnight stay at The Farmyard.

This Grade 5 track requires careful walking on uneven surfaces and along quite narrow rocky sections with steep drop offs. There is limited signage, so look for the orange track markers to help you stay on the track (a topographic map and compass or GPS device is recommended). It is only suitable for experienced bushwalkers.

Visitor Tips: This route is high and exposed, so is best avoided in bad weather, low visibility or strong winds. 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.
