Mt Cooke is the highest peak in the Darling Ranges and is definitely our favourite!
Unlike its buddies Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent, Mt Cooke features around 3km of trail along the main ridge of the summit and spectacular views in all directions. Within the first 5 minutes of this hike you’ll find yourself ascending up the South side of the monadnock along a rugged narrow rocky trail and will be immediately impressed by large sloping granite outcrops and giant boulders.
We’ll take the incline nice and easy but as we reach the top we’ll stop to explore the Mt Cooke Cave! This hiking experience can be quite steep in parts but is very rewarding and a whole lot of fun! You can expect stunning views in all directions, rugged landscapes and serenity as you immerse yourself in this very special trail.
As we meander along the summit of Mt Cooke, we will stop to admire the views from 582m above sea level and enjoy a delicious gourmet picnic.
