Woolpack Rocks is a 8km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Cathedral Rock National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

Woolpack Rocks shouldn’t be overlooked just because the national park wasn’t named after them. Easily accessible from Native Dog campground, this feature is a geological wonder in its own right.
As you walk towards the Woolpack Rocks, their size and shape capture your gaze. You can tell they’re ancient – in fact, they’re around 270 million years old. You can also see some of the dykes created at the same time when molten rock pushed into deep pockets within the earth’s crust; you’re walking along a timeline.
The well-weathered boulders are 1400m above sea level, yet clambering to the summit is even easier than at Cathedral Rock. So, you’re getting a great scenic view for the price of a prehistoric walk and an easy climb.
