Pieries Peak walking track is a 3km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Mount Royal National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
Pieries Peak walking track is a short climb from Youngville campground to the peak. The track follows a narrow and rocky ridge with steep sides. It’s not for the faint hearted. Make sure you take some treats to celebrate when you reach the peak. Pause to enjoy the scenic views across the Hunter Valley.
Keep an eye out for wedge-tailed eagles soaring above. See if you can spot seasonal visitors like dollar birds and channel-billed cuckoos. You could also encounter brush turkeys, superb lyrebirds, honeyeaters and flycatchers around the track.
Rug up in winter. When the westerly winds blow, the peak can be extremely cold.
