I solo hiked to Cathedral Rock. The track does have signage at the beginning. But I still missed that and went up to the end of the road by mistake. Anyway once I returned to the track head I was ok. It’s a steep climb on an ankle twisting track at times. But the views are worth it. I went on to Montague Thumbs and joined up with the Wellington Falls and Pipeline tracks before catching a ride back to Kingston. Around 17km all up as a thru hike.

A wonderful testament to young fit people and a brutal reality check for middle age “spread”. Glad I made it up and back but ‘oh the pain’. Thirty years ago would have taken it in my stride but it’s not thirty years ago is it!! Not for the faint hearted but definitely worth the effort.

Great hike with staggering views. One work of advice is when climbing back down not far from the summit the track appears to split in to two tracks. Keep left as I nearly got into trouble turning to the right.

Super fun and challenging hike! Starts easy and the last bit is the most challenging part, but well worth the views. Just beware of the bees/hornets during summer.

Delightful walk through alpine landscape to a rather spectacular look-out with great sweeping views. Long day walk so it is important to bring plenty of water and lunch

There are many bush walking options around Mt Wellington. We took the Organ Pipes walk which started at the upper section of The Springs. There is a car park at the bottom section of the Springs (where there is a map which shows all the walks around that area), but there is also a car park at the upper section (if you want to conserve your energy). You have to follow the Pinnacles Track for about half an hour before then branching off to the Organ Pipes Track. The Pinnacles Track is quite challenging, with consistent ascent for the whole 1/2 hour. The track has undergone works in 2017, so the quality of the track is excellent (still a bit rocky which helps with grip, hence not too slippery and not too difficult), although you do have to be reasonably fit to tackle this track. Once you go on the Organ Pipes Track, the Track becomes quite flat and easy to traverse. I say traverse because you are literally traversing the side of the mountain. We came across sections where large dolerite boulders seem to have broken off and tumbled down the mountain. I believe this section offers fantastic views of Hobart and Derwent River. However when we were there, the fog descended upon us, so there was nothing to see, and it was quite an eerie feeling being alone up in the mountain. After about 40 minutes, you come across the Organ Pipes rocks, and they are truly spectacular. Definitely worth visiting!

We followed the walk as described in the Chapmans’ book ‘Day Walks’ to Cathedral Rock, Montagu’s Thumbs and Wellington Falls starting at Betts Road. I’ve never done such a hard walk (we’re only moderately fit) and did it in 8.5 hours but it was totally worth it. Steep climbs scrabbling over rocks, but the views are superb; got to the thumbs and thought it was all downhill from there but found there was still more thumbs to climb; the track over the back was very overgrown so I cut my shins up a bit - foolishly I had worn shorts as it was a hot day; lost the track a couple of times as we are not so experienced following markers like cairns and coloured tape in branches etc. and quite honestly we were starting to feel a little panicky doing the descent to the falls, but stayed confident in Chapmans’ excellent track notes that were spot on, and doing the descent down Pipeline Track was so steep and seemed to go on forever - very hard on already sore feet, but very glad it was a dry day as it would have been impossible in the rain. But we ended the day exhausted but exhilarated and having seen some amazing scenery, and hopefully do again someday - but perhaps after some training next time :-)
Definitely a dry weather walk and for fit walkers with a fair bit of experience on poorly marked tracks, and fantastic views.

Am not particularly fit so OMG I found it hard work but golly it felt good to get to the top...views were amazing and the exhilaration of reaching the peak was almost breathtaking but I was already completely if you are basically fit and not overweight then it will be a hard slog for twenty five minutes but you will recover took me about a day to get over it!! Have fun....

The walk up to the top of Cathedral Rock is quite a difficult hike - it took us a good two hours to get to the very top and that included a fair number of breaks along the way as the zigzagging part of the track goes straight up the mountain! The track is very steep and slippery in some areas, but fairly well maintained so it is wide and easy to see where to go most of the time, however it is definitely recommended to wear sturdy, waterproof shoes/boots and have a look at a map of the track.

The top of the mountain offers amazing views down through the Huon Valley, Tasman Peninsular, Bruny Island, Kingston, Hobart and the back of Mount Wellington! It is a very challenging walk, but is well worth it when you get to the top and see the incredible views. It can get very windy at the top, and the last 20 minutes of the walk is almost a rock climb it is so steep, so ensure to stay up-to-date on what is happening with the weather whilst up on the mountain. Make sure to take plenty of water and some snacks too as the walk does take a decent 3 hours for experienced/fit walkers. And a camera to capture the incredible peak!
