Lovely walk around Manly Dam with the nice surprise of a pretty waterfall as well.

Very poorly marked. Done the Split Rock Track and was very keen to continue on to the falls. Didn't realize we had to go back and follow a different trail to do so. Followed the red arrows for 2 hours and ended up in a massive expanse of rock with a random red arrow pointing ahead and no other ones to follow. Turned around and came back too exhausted to continue to the falls where we should have turned. Hard and challenging hike and even though we never got to our destination we would definitely come back and try again. Do recommend reading your map well beforehand

Have walked the rail trail from Wanora through to Yarraman (5 days). Can highly recommend this walk. I would not recommend that you take your dog on any section of the rail trail as it passes through alot of unfenced farmland with farm dogs on the loose. Accommodation was a mixture of pub accommodation and motels, with an over night camp at Coominya. Facilities were better along the track the further in you walked. Would love to do the whole walk now that the trail has been completed.

great short trail. spectacular cliffside views of the surrounding mountains and Canberra.

Needs to be done early in the morning and fly nets are a must! But great views from the top and a testing hike

Tough hike with all the stairs but great views!

Track walked in reverse to recommended route. Long climb from the valley floor up to Binna Burra. Not for the faint hearted. Signage was inadequate from this direction but we fumbled through ok. Took a detour along the Coomera Circuit heading from Binna Burra to Lamington. The waterfalls were worth it! Fantastic walk over 3 days. Looking forward to doing it again in reverse.

Beautiful local walk

Wonderful walk. Start at Elysian Rock Lookout for sunrise.

It gets weird at the dam wall but otherwise a very nice walk. You have to go into The Gaps' back streets. The walkabout info centre has a paper with directions you can have.

Love this track, take a headlamp and get to Kooloobano point for sunrise.
Have completed the run many times, prefer anti-clockwise (top trail). currently difficulty is alot higher due to obstacles from storms. for easy/moderate running and power hiking allow 2.5 hrs

I started from explorer tree and to be honest, except for the first day, it was a pretty boring hike. I don't see the pleasure in hiking on a durt track for 4wd for 20km.

Campsites are nice but for the second and last night, it was not possible to open the tap on the big green tank so, only option was to get water at the toilets.

I wouldn't recommend this hike

Nice easy walk which you can start anywhere along the track to add or shorten the distance you want to go.

Well kept and suitable for young kids.

Great Trail Track,

Interesting trail but river was dry.

love this place!! the way back is tiring as there are incline bits, but overall its a great walk. we went swimming in the waterfall pool, it was great!! :) ..the cafe nearby 'the edge restaurant' has spectacular views before or after this walk

The first time I did this I hated it, because I was with a group and felt like I had to keep up with them. There are many stairs. Being back multiple times I love this hike now! Allowing 30-60 minutes to reach the top and sitting down regularly is what made me love it. The views are beautiful, I plan to bring food up next time to enjoy sitting at the top longer!

favourite mountain walk of all I have ever done, because the view is amazing! didn't find it hard

loved this trail! the 'falls' were just puddles only due to lack of rain. the view at the top is spectacular! theres a cafe up the top too. I saw another trail on the other side of the mountain for next time! compared to other mountain hikes, the walk is easy! Bubblers along the way and toilets at start and finish

Grate walk, bit steep.

Great track very small water fall

It was a great walk and definitely looking forward to getting up early in winter and getting up there for the sunrise, that will be magnificent. Even though it’s the middle of summer, the breeze still had a chill on the top, easy to see how this place could get very cold, very quickly.

The walk is not overly difficult with some stairs and a good rock climb at the top, but this shouldn’t deter anyone as there is a chain to assist.

It is pretty heavily trafficked but everyone is very courteous and aware. Watch out for some of the super fit ones that run down. Lol.

Lovely hike, easy as! Beautiful view at the top, and it's good for all ages to be able to accomplish.

Side note there are lots of loose rocks so do wear good foot wear.

A bigger pathway and great to see the cascades at the bottom. A few mountain bikers use this so great to see more people using it.

Very steep at the start and narrow. Best to take or find a stick to assist you if a bit unconfident on your balance. A few trees have fallen over some parts of the path but all good.

great for a got day and with young kids
