Summary

This walk trail offers fine views of the surrounding farmlands and remnant bushland. You take the short Wave Rock Walk to a set of railings that climb up onto the main rock formation. It is fairly steep but easy enough for people of average fitness and mobility with appropriate shoes.

The Hyden Rock Walk Trail is a great short trail for people seeking an overall perspective other than just a photo oportunity in front of the wave formation itself. Besides expansive views, you get to see odd rock formations and in warm weather plenty of scurrying dragon lizaRoads. There are two loops. The shorter loop is 860 metres long in total from the Car Park. The second loop is 1300 metres. The routes are well marked, over slopping granite which can be slippery after rain. Read the interperative signage along the way to learn about the rock formations and the fascinating plants and animals. Be aware that there is some accending and descending involved.
