Kahlpahlim Rock Trail, Dinden National Park
6 Hours  / 10.8 Kilometres


Kahlpahlim Rock Trail, through Dinden National Park, takes you to Kahlpahlim Rock (also known as Lambs Head), the highest point on the Lamb Range at around 1,300 metres above sea level. The sheer size of the rock and the views over the Davies Creek catchment are impressive.

The trail starts 13.3 kilometres along Davies Creek Road. The trail ascends steeply along a former logging track before passing through rainforest, featuring magnificent blue kauri pine trees, and crossing two small creeks. Listen for calls of tooth-billed bowerbirds that loudly mimic the songs of other birds. After leaving the rainforest, the trail travels steeply through dry forest of casuarina and banksia trees before coming to a junction 4.4 kilometres along the trail. Walk one kilometre along the right-hand trail to reach the enormous granite boulders of Kahlpahlim Rock. For your safety do not venture past the boulders and stay on the walking track at all times. The trail is10.8 kilometre return and requires about six hours walking time; the grade is difficult.
