This grade 5 hike is extremely difficult and is suitable for very experienced bushwalkers only. It climbs 550m north from Sugarloaf Saddle Day Visitor Area to Sugarloaf Peak, the highest point on the range and is a challenging approach. The route involves short sections of free climbing, up near-vertical rock faces, which is not recommended for small children.
Avoid this track if you are uncomfortable in high open and exposed places and do not attempt in wet or windy conditions. Carrying backpacks is not recommended, as the track involves squeezing through the very narrow passage of Wells Cave and is recommended as an ascent route only. Descend via the steep rock face of the 650m Canyon Track.
