Full description
You will travel north from Batemans Bay in a comfortable air-conditioned car, before arriving to the hike's starting location. Considered an easy 3-hour return hike, the first section straight out of the car park is quite steep, and walkers should be prepared for a tough first ascent. The first of the rest stops atop a granite outcrop provides great views to the south, and is a welcome chance to rest.

The trail then continues on a relatively flat plateau through tea tree and xanthoria, with pockets of dry and uniquely wet temperate forest passing you on both sides for the next half hour. The mountain then gently rises, prior to the first of a series of steel ladders and platforms constructed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service. The safe steel structures will guide you to the summit, where expansive views into the Buddawang Wilderness and the ocean await.

Lunch is prepared midway on the descent, with incredible views to help you savor the experience. Upon returning to the car park, your guides will take you to the best spot to take a dip or soak your feet to celebrate your hike. You will visit either a local beach, or the freshwater of the pristine upper Clyde River.
