St Patricks Head

Published 09-05-2021

Finally here comes the report from the hike up to St Patrick’s Head a couple weekends ago. It’s a short hike (2 hours total) but is for those with a good head for heights. It’s an adventurous hop to the top, through rainforest, dry sclerophyll, and boulder scrambling at the end, with an awe-inspiring view over the ocean and East Coast (Scamander, St Helens, etc), as well as Fingal Valley, St Mary’s and Mt Elephant. The hike reminded me a bit of Hanging Rock and Minnow Falls. Driving into St Mary’s from Fingal you can hardly miss St Patrick’s Head which juts out of the horizon into a perfect pyramid. It’s probably one of the best short hikes I’ve done, combining everything you could ever want in a great walk. Thanks to Hildegunn for the great day out. See everyone at the next hike.
