Starting from Peak Charles Campground, North Cascade, this walk takes you to Peak Charles and back. Reaching Peak Charles is demanding and requires a lot of rock scrambling and a number of points where walkers need to lift their own weight, but it rewards the walkers with a view 600 metres above sea level. The walk follows a path that is mixed with mallee and shrub and views of granite. Check the weather conditions before you visit the area, as the storms can make it difficult to navigate through the rocky terrain. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Warning This journey requires significant bushwalking experience, specialised equipment and navigation skills. Please ensure you and your group well prepared and equiped for this journey.
