About Mount Gower

Dominating the southern tip, Mt Gower is Lord Howe Island’s tallest mountain. There is an 8 - 10 hour, 875-metre rope-assisted climb to the summit which is rated one of the world's best one-day hikes, but it’s not for the faint-hearted. Hikers must scramble up a trail that disappears vertically into the forest on the lower slopes of Mt Lidgbird, before skirting the exposed south-west scarp of the mountain by creeping along a narrow ledge clinging to a rope with a sheer drop at your back.
