Walk Description

The track climbs steadily, rising about 100m in 250m until the ridge between Le Souef Peak and The Sentinel is reached. This is a good spot to admire the ruggedness of the surroundings before dropping about 30 m and ascending the same amount to Corral Peak.

There are other tracks that can be used to explore this area. If you do not want to climb the peaks there are huge granite outcrops that can be explored by walking around and under them.  From the vantage points high up there are good views to the east.

Return by the same route.

Getting There

Drive towards Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford.  Take the turn off to Mt Buffalo near Porepunkah.  Drive up Mt Buffalo and continue driving south (that is, take the right fork just after you reach the plateau level – the left fork goes to the chalet).

The walk start is about 6.5 km from this road fork. Once past Lake Catani, the road climbs steadily until The Cathedral is reached. The track to Corral Peak is roughly opposite.

There is an extensive parking area and also toilets (for the rock climbers who climb The Cathedral and The Hump).
