Relaxing hike. My wife and I did this hike several times while exploring on the weekends when we lived in Brisbane. It is an easy access....you can bike there, take public transportation, or drive. Great plants and wildlife. The view of Brisbane is great at the top.
This trail is very popular both for the locals and tourists alike. This trail is used predominantly for fitness and other associated outdoor activities. There are quite a few tracks to choose from depending on your levels of fitness and all offer some great views of Townsville CBD and surroundings, Cape Cleveland and Magnetic island. It is popular with tourists also as it offers great sunset photo opportunities. The most used (by me anyway) is the Goat track and the Dianela Trail ( currently closed ) to the summit trail. The Goat track is quite a difficult track as it is very steep and has lots of uneven steps to reach the carpark (well over 500) and a few more to the summit for good measure. If you are not that adventurous Castle Hill Summit can be accessed on foot, by bike or car via the road. It is quite steep but manageable. It is more even and no stairs. (Except to the summit walk)
Living in Townsville Qld Australia, it is easy to forget that as a local resident there is plenty to do. This trail walk is easy and does offer some great views, some excellent fishing spots, and for the most part accessible to all. Whether you are a walker, jogger or simply out for a leisure stroll there is plenty to do for kids and adults alike. The Jezzine Park path offers the fitness person plenty of stairs and steeper paths for either jogging or running with great views at the top of Cleveland Bay and Magnetic Island and the Strand and its Rockpool. The strand walk is fantastic and there is plenty to do (Walk, jog, cycle, swim etc). There are plenty of park benches and some fitness equipment as well as kid friendly parks and attractions.
