Hike Summary

Hopetoun Falls walking track offers a short but thrilling adventure for the intrepid traveller looking for solitude in a stunning natural setting. This walking track crosses one of the less explored parts of Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area.
Though it begins at Federal Falls campground, it quickly diverges into snow gum grassy woodland as you move downhill, away from any visitors. The track then graduates into rocky heathland before brushing up against a peaceful creek - perfect for a refreshing splash. Cross the creek via the bridge and then follow the trail as it leaps over a small hill and down into a final steep descent which brings you all the way to a pleasant area overlooking Hopetoun Falls.
Settle down in cool woodlands with a packed picnic lunch or pull out your binoculars for a spot of birdwatching. Just be sure to bring plenty of water and wear sturdy footwear as this walk is suitable for people with hiking experience. Its modest challenges deliver a great afternoon reward.
