Why this Hike
This hike through Warren Gorge is a stunning example of native Pinetree forest and towering rocky gorge cliffs. The trail is moderately challenging and is perfect for walkers looking for a half day adventure which is truly a great experience. With lookouts, native wildlife and beautiful native landscapes this hike is certainly worth the trek.
Track Notes & Overview
Starting from the Warren Gorge Campgrounds this hike follows the five kilometre loop along the Warren Gorge Loop Trail. The trailhead is marked at the campground and there are white circular tin can lids which mark the track for the rest of the trail. The trail has a range in terrain which includes a bit of a climb in some sections. This climb is offset with the reward of seeing the great local birdlife and wildlife such as the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby which are somewhat rare. Included in the walk are a few short side trips such as Smoke-oh lookout and Lookout Rocks which can provide with some great views and sights as you pass through the towering cliffs of this gorge. Carrying on walking past the lookouts you will circle back to the campground and complete the walk.
