Poorly signed.

Would suggest beginning the walk of Light Line Rd. this is off the main road down through what appears to a driveway with a wooden fence. Take GPS or DL the map. check others comments below.

Other than that, great walk!

Great trail. A bit of hard work, but well worth the view once you make it up!

good for hiking. nice view

What a magnificent trail. Perfect workout to and from and when you get to Pearl Beach do yourself a favour have a swim at probably the best beach on the coast. Great day.

A family friendly fire trail walk most of the way, with the chance for a little more once you reach the water. I would like to try this again on a mountain bike.

awesome hike. camped two nights and had a great time. highly recommend. didn't see any snakes though!

10,000 steps and the views are worth it! There are two water fountains and restrooms at the top.

Just did part of it today. Trail running is good. Youll get some pavement. First tip! Ask for directions or download the trail and follow. Second tip. When at the first sandy beach you can run all the way towards the end near the rock cliffs. You want to find a trail that to the right going up to the houses. The one i found had a blue rope you could use to assist you up. Once on top you will be on a flat surface between the cliffs and houses for beautiful views. I turned around after about 3 miles 5k due to high winds and i forgot a light jacket or wind breaker. Awesome views! Will finish next time.

Stunning views and some good fast sections. Well worth a trip.

very nice trail, long but good

This is a great walking trail for people of all fitness levels as well as it offers beautiful views of Brisbane and the Brisbane River.

GPS is a must. Trails are pretty rocky at times and a bit sandy. Some good scenary and wildlife along the way.

classic track!!!

Great track for a work out. Not very picturesque. Loved listening to the bellbirds.

Beautiful scenery very busy at the start but once we’d walked about 1km we hardly saw anyone as most people just seem to stay near the carparks next to the river. Signage is almost non-existent so having your phone to check navigation is a must.

awesome track lots of steep stuff can be challenging but an awesome walk

Great track, scenic and very relaxing. Loose rocks, so wear proper shoes. Minimal signs, be prepared to get lost, part of the adventure.

Fantastic track with excellent markings. Took me three and a half hours. Some slippery and muddy bits plus a shoes off creek crossing but a really beautiful walk.

Nice easy walk

Lovely location, in a few parts there’s water to cross, so bring the correct footwear. Not hard but a few hills I had to carry my 2 year old up. Worth the trip.

Love the 1000 steps. Always a great cardio workout

One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever walked!

Lovely walk and great scenery. Moderate inclines not too strenuous. Took just over two hours at a leisurely pace from start to finish. Will definitely go back in near future.

Challenging but rewarding hike. Inexperienced or unfit hikers may find it challenging as you are up and down hills the entire way, with steep inclines at the start and end pushing the legs. Having said that, very happy we did it and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a challenge

A great walk along the cliff tops. You are very exposed though and the weather can change rapidly.. fantastic views!

Would have liked to have seen this at dawn as others have said but we didn't have the luxury of time on our side. Still, it's a decent hike up and views are nice.

As the day progresses the haze gets worse and hence why dawn would be best.

The last stretch may be a little challenging for some as you’re scrambling over rock at steep height. There are chains to aid. We saw are varied amount of people.

Recommend hiking poles on the way down as it pounds the knees for those who don’t have great knees anymore.
