About Hyden Rock Walk, Hyden
The Hyden Rock Walk Trail is a great short trail for people seeking an overall perspective other than just a photo oportunity in front of the wave formation itself. Besides expansive views, you get to see odd rock formations and in warm weather plenty of scurrying dragon lizards.
There are two loops. The shorter loop is 860 metres long in total from the carpark. The second loop is 1300 metres. The routes are well marked, over slopping granite which can be slippery after rain. Read the interperative signage along the way to learn about the rock formations and the fascinating plants and animals. Be aware that there is some accending and descending involved.
