Getting there

Plug - Mt Budawang trail - into Google Maps and it will take you straight to the carpark. The last 3kms of the drive to the carpark are a bit rough. 2WD is fine but you will probably want a vehicle with decent clearance - most SUVs would be fine. 

Route/Trail notes

From the carpark it's a steady ascent up to the summit on the Mt Budawang access road. Partial views through the trees on the way up but the best views are at the summit. Can see all the way out to Pigeonhouse Mountain in the north.

It's funny how often the biggest peak in the range is the easiest. Mt Budawang is a nice walk but it's nothing compared to the better known peaks of the Budawangs like Pigeonhouse and the Castle. NSW National Parks recommends 7-8hrs on their website which is insane, it took me 50mins to get from the carpark to the summit. The view at the top is okay, the problem is the summit is quite broad and rounded making photos quite difficult. The walk reminded me of the Mt Allen firetower walk in SEQ.
