Easy access to walk trail with parking available, take water, hat and good shoes to scale the rock face. On your toe pushing upwards all the way so need to be fit and confident with heights but not a technical climb.

Stopped by Frenchman's peak by accident and thought it would be a great idea for a trail run up there. Was a fantastic and challenging run up there with a good mix of easy sessions and some more difficult climbs. Stunning view from the peak...More

No matter where you go, you always seem to be able to catch sight of this spectacular peak, there’s a walk there but you need to be very fit and allow at least three hours to do it.

Great short hike with an outstanding view from the top. It took us only about 25 mins to make it to the top. It's not as imposing as it seems from the car park. Take a jacket, can be breezy up top

Just climbed Frenchman’s Peak and definitely worth the climb. Weather was nice and warm, but I recommend bringing insect spray, fly’s were really bad. Excellent views all around, loved it and will definitely do it again
