Starting from the Jawbone Carpark on St Bernards Track, Taggerty, this walk leads to North and South Jawbone via the Jawbone Creek Track. Enjoy this challenging walk through the rugged landscape of the Cathedral Range, and take in the magnificent views of the valley below from the North and South Jawbone Peaks. Lyrebirds can be heard in the surrounding bush, lizards can be seen scurrying across the rocks, and even the occasional snake may be spotted. The peaks at sunrise are spectacular, and are a great introduction to overnight hiking. This walk has some very steep inclines, big steps and slippery climbs, and it requires a reasonable amount of fitness to be completed. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
