A 90-minute drive from Melbourne through the Black Spur, the Cathedral Ranges State Park is home to two of the best day adventure in Victoria; one them being the Northern Circuit.
A 12km adventure, the Northern Circuit will begin at the Cooks Mill campground where we will head west and zig-zag our way to Ned’s Peak where the views are at an all-time high.
Following the Ridge Line Track for a period of time, we’ll take in 360 views of Kinglake, Buxton, Taggerty and Marysville as we make our way down to the popular Farmyard; an ideal spot for lunch.
Water sources are scarce on the trail but we’ve got you covered as we will supply you with all the water and fresh fruit you’ll need to last you the entire adventure.
We deem this hike to be a Grade Four hike in accordance with the Australian Walking Track Grading System which refers to a track that “is recommended for experienced bushwalkers”. To find out more about this Grading System, click here.
This hike includes a consistently steep hike up to the range and then requires both hiking and rock scrambling across the Ridge Line where the track is never flat. Our guides are there to support and lead you but you will need strong fitness to hike potentially 6-7 hours across this type of terrain. If you are unsure, just coming back to hiking or recovering from injury/surgery please contact us to chat about whether this hike is suitable for you.
