Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you enjoy a bit of a challenge, this is definitely worthwhile. From start to finish took us about an hour, which included 30 min for the ascent, 15 min up top, and 15 min descent. Probably allow 90 minutes.

It's pretty steep though, so you need to be reasonably fit, and we saw a number of people really struggling. I wouldn't come here in wet conditions though - too slippery and dangerous.

Views from up top weren't that great when we visited (too hazy), but you can see the ocean. The huge cave near the top was also really neat to explore.

We only climbed halfway up as weather very windy. Still got great views. Need to be fit and sure-footed (good shoes) for granite climb up and down.

If you are fit enough, the 50 min climb is well worth doing. Mostly granite rock so you will need good hiking shoes. I had done the climb in 1980 when I was 11 and this was my first time back. Was a beautiful clear, cool day and the view is stunning once you reach the top. There are some very steep parts so care is needed. Well worth the visit on the way to Lucky Bay.

A highlight of our 5 week trip for our teen boy- challenging hike with pretty flowers seen along the way- up steep rock - good shoes and legs needed. Beautiful caves great for exploring and amazing views.

We had been to Frenchmans Peak before but it was too hot to climb it so this time it had to be ticked off the list.It was a mild cloudy day but with strong winds.It isnt the most difficult walk Ive ever done but on the steep decent at the bottom you need to follow the markers as they will give you the easiest route up the hill.When you reach the top the views are amazing with glimpses of Cape Le Grand Beach,Hellfire and just views for miles and miles.Was chuffed that we got it done and ticked off our bucket list.Well worth the effort.Saw women in their 70s doing the climb.I would suggest good non slip shoes and you will have no problems.I think my husband did it in thongs as he does with all walks

I think this hike is more than 'moderately difficult'. It's not a long hike, but there is one steep ascent to the caves - saw a few people stop hiking further at this point.

Don't stop at the first cave - go a bit further to see the 2nd larger cave!

Beautiful hike! We really enjoyed getting to the top. The way down is just as steep, was crazy watching some people just run down it 😂

unfortunately could not get to the top, 70yo and after a knee replacementand it was raining when we got there. The climb at the top is very steep but i know it is worth.

Spectacular. Steep climb but not too far. There’s a beautiful cave three quarters of the way up. The view from the top is incredible
