A wonderful walk along a steep, narrow path that rewards with breathtaking views out to sea. Early sections are relatively easy-going, but track becomes narrower and more difficult as you climb.

I tracked this walk using a GPX but may not be 100% accurate as phone reception isn't always great. Likewise the positioning of the points of interest (photos) were a bit of a guess. But don't worry the track is well marked and established so you wont get lost.

1. The Path

No a lot of shade for the fist little bit, but great to get going.

2. Little bridge

Great bridge to cross after rain.

3. View to Tidal River

Love it when you can see the sea from the track!

4. Rocky path

The path gets a little rocky in parts, but it's not a problem for people steady on their feet.

5. Near the top

Path gets a bit smoother again as you near the top.

6. Looking to Mount Oberon

Wonderful spot to stop for lunch as it's usually sheltered from the wind the summit isn't).

View to Tidal River and Norman Bay.

8. Squeaky Beach

View from the summit to Squeaky Beach is definitely worth the walk!
