Starting from Rykers Road, Cape Tribulation, this return walk takes you to the summit of Mount Sorrow via the Mount Sorrow Ridge Trail, exploring the dense rainforest of Daintree National Park along the way. The giant rock at the end will provide you with some of the best coastal views you’ve ever seen, including the Cape Tribulation Beach and Snapper Island. But, it comes at a price. It’s a constant uphill ascent, with an assisting rope at the steepest section. So if you’re up for a great challenge that’s going to satisfy you at the end, this walk is definitely for you. Cool off at the Cape Tribulation Beach afterwards to give your legs a rest. Exercise extreme caution after the metal lookout point as you walk towards the giant rock. Keep in mind that the highest points of the mountain tend to be cooler and more humid, therefore leeches can be expected in these conditions. The track becomes slippery when wet as well, so try to schedule the walk in dry conditions. Depending on the season, you may run into snakes or/and spiders along the way. Good level of fitness and hiking experience is required. 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.
