Mount Cooke Trail

This walk within the Monadnocks National Park includes about 3 kms along the main ridge and summit of Mount Cooke which at 582m above sea level (and about 200m above the surrounding plateau) is the highest granite monadnock in the Darling Range.

Although the walk is only 11 kms in length, allow at least 4 hours including a 1/2 hour rest stop. In mid-winter conditions along the narrow summit ridge can be unpleasant and special care is needed in high winds and when rain or low clouds reduce visibility. The 240m climb up Mt Cooke along the Bibbulmun Track from the Campsite should otherwise not be too challenging for a reasonably fit walker.
