  • Beautiful easy walk. Not for people afraid of heights right at the end. I found there to be QUITE a lot of people to be honest for somewhere reasonably rural, so don't expect to be alone. Really interesting rock formations. We went in winter and it was extremely hot still so... it's pretty exposed!
  • Beautiful National Park! The Summit to Cathedral Rock is medium difficulty hike with beautiful scenary and stunning 360 views at the Summit! The last 100 or so meters does require use of hands for climbing although there is a chain to assist in a small section. Be careful with the rocks as they're sharp and will cut your skin (not deep).
