The Pyramid

The Pyramid track is accessed from the Granite Arch track, about 500m from the Bald Rock Creek day-use area. The first part of the walk is fairly easy, crossing the creek by bridge and winding through pleasant bushland. When the track reaches the base of The Pyramid, it becomes quite steep — with lots of stairs and it can be hard going. The track reaches the tree-line and continues upwards across the steep, exposed rock faces of the granite dome. The climb is well worth the effort.

First Pyramid

At the northern side of the top (elevation: 1180m) is a large, balancing rock. There are also excellent views of the park. To the east is Bald Rock and to the south are Castle Rock, Mt Norman, the Sphinx and Turtle Rock. Immediately to the north is the bare dome of the Second Pyramid. There isn't a walking track to the Second Pyramid and you need considerable rock climbing experience to be able to scale it.

The summit of The Pyramid has steep cliffs and the rocks can be slippery, so it is advised to keep to the track and to supervise children closely.
