Description

The graded walking track to the twin peaks of Mount Mitchell in Main Range National Park begins on the southern side of the Cunningham Highway at Cunningham's Gap - follow signs at pedestrian exit points. (Take care when crossing the highway). Rainforest and open eucalypt forest will be encountered on this track, which ends on a knife-edge ridge above a sheer cliff on the east peak of Mount Mitchell (1168 metres). This peak is known as Cooyinnirra to the Aboriginal people. Care must be taken at the cliff edge.
