Corker trail is a 20km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Barrington Tops National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1-2 days to complete.

Summary

It’s not called Corker trail for nothing. This is a high altitude, high-octane adventure walk for fit and experienced bushwalkers in the rugged mountain country of Barrington Tops National Park. This challenging track follows the ridgeline from Lagoon Pinch picnic area to Careys Peak on the Barrington Plateau. It won’t just be the scenery that will take your breath away.
Winding through a variety of vegetation, from tall open woodlands to lush rainforest and cool temperate stands of Antarctic beech, your vigorous effort will be rewarded with brilliant views near Corker Mountain. After that, the expansive snow gum woodlands, grassy plains, and swamps of the Barrington Tops plateau will roll out before you.
Why not pitch the tent at Wombat Creek campground, before taking in the inspiring views at Careys Peak lookout? Spend a night under the stars before heading back, or explore the plateau via a network of linked walks.
