Edney’s Trail is a 6km, grade 4 Return hike located in Mt Augustus National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

Edney’s Trail is a Grade 4, six kilometre return hike which, although has a reasonable degree of difficulty, is not as challenging as the Summit Trail. There are some great views over the expansive plains.

For a less strenuous challenge to the Summit Trail, many hikers get their lookout fix on this one. Not that you should underestimate this trail too much. If you are prone to taking frequent rest stops masquerading as photo stops, you could take up to 5 hours to bag this trail. Edney’s Trail takes you to Edney’s Lookout where expansive views make it well worth the effort. In reality, this walk trail is really an extension of the  Ooramboo Trail.
