Mount Cooke to Nerang
27th July 2019
The Hike - Continuing on from one of my favourite sections on the track, the hike between the Mt Cooke Campsite and Nerang is no less spectacular. Mt Cooke is a popular day hike in the Perth Hills and holds the distinction of being the highest point of the Darling Scarp with an elevation of 582m at the summit. Having been destroyed by fire in 2003, the old campsite at Mt Cooke was in a much better location on the edge of a small valley but the new one is just as nice and has plenty of space to wander around. I've always enjoyed a stop in at this campsite because as a day walker it is a nice place to rest before tackling the climb up to the summit and beyond.
