Mount Sorrow ridge trail, Daintree National Park (CYPAL)
The Mount Sorrow ridge trail is located within the Daintree National Park (CYPAL), Cape Tribulation section. This trail climbs from the coastal lowlands of Cape Tribulation, up the rainforest-clad ridge of Mount Sorrow to a lookout offering views of the beautiful Daintree coastline, Snapper Island and beyond.
The Mount Sorrow ridge trail is not for everyone. Although marked, walkers have been lost in this area. You must be prepared for a very steep and difficult trail with log scrambling required in some places. Only experienced bushwalkers with above average fitness should attempt this trail.
Walk times are approximate only and based on travel in good weather conditions. You will need to adjust these times to suit your group’s level of experience and fitness. The times are for walking only. Remember to allow plenty of extra time for rest stops, meal breaks and sightseeing. Distance markers have been placed at one kilometre intervals along the walk to help monitor your progress.
Set off well before 10am, to take advantage of the cooler temperatures and to allow time to return. Return via the same route. Leave the lookout before 2pm to allow at least three hours of daylight for the return journey.
