Mt Ragged Walk Trail is a 3km, grade 5 Return hike located in Cape Arid National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

Mt Ragged Walk Trail at Cape Arid National Park is an exciting three kilometre return walk and climbing trail to the Tower Peak of Mount Ragged.

Start the walk trail at the Mt Ragged Car Park and ascend the range to Mt Ragged (Tower Peak). The walk to the summit of Tower Peak (594 metres) is a tough, steep ascent with the track overgrown in parts. Hoist yourself up some decent size rock faces and enjoy the adventure to climb within this spectacular scenery. The climb is rewaRoaded with impressive views.  Mid way up the mountain, the trail crosses a platform carved by wave action thousands of years ago when the sea level was much higher than present. Similar wave action is thought to have carved the caverns in the granitic hills of the south coast, for example, the hollow through the summit of Frenchman Peak in Cape Le Grand National Park.  Although challenging, the Mt Ragged Walk Trail also offers terrific opportunities for spotting Birds. There are known to be around 160 Bird species in Cape Arid National Park, several of which are threatened or endangered. Camping is available at Mt Ragged, providing toilet and barbecue facilities. Campsites are not bookable and operate on a first come first served basis. Approx 850km from Perth the trail is accessible by 4WD only.  From Balladonia on the Eyre Highway there is reasonable gravel road for the first 60km before changing to a rough, rocky sand track.
