Definitely for hikers with a lil rock climbing/scrambling experience. Has some small but easy rock climbing sections the walk its self is easy and has some great views! hardest part would be coming down the rock climbing parts. highly recommend.

Unfit and overweight but accomplished it. This is a steep trail with slippery sections but not too difficult for a novice The reward is the peak ❤️

Nice hike to get a little taste of the Daintree

Beautiful scenery, some paths can be misleading, however would be okay for inexperienced hiker. Basic navigation skills are a must. Take plenty of water and snacks.

Fun to do with the dogs

The track was incredibly overgrown with weeds and there were what appeared to be pig diggings everywhere! On the plus side, I didn’t pass any other hikers so it’s nice and quiet. The view of the dam at the top is obstructed.

Great views from the top and worth the steeper climb towards the end. Was less busy than Mt Cordeaux.

Great walk and surprisingly not too steep, considering the impressive views from the top.

Lovely comfortable walk. Shaded by tall trees most of the way and great views whenever the forest clears up.

Great walk

Awesome view!

Not difficult but good fun

Great hike with rewarding views

The Mount Edwards trail is a nicely formed track with a consistent gradient to get the heart pumping. While it is an easy walk for the most part, anyone walking with children might consider warning them about the cliff edges, as this trail is thankfully kept natural (limited artificial steps and no railings).

The trail is predominantly a short hike for those visiting Moogerah Dam, and in fact begins by first crossing the dam and then following the clearly marked stairs up onto the track. From there it's a single well-trodden dirt trail with some loose rocks to mindful of kicking down in the steeper sections. Largely covered by trees it is shady for the most part, although would be hot in summer. Add to your winter hiking list like most of the nearby peaks.

Highlights include a section of beautiful Grass Trees (aka Blaga / Xanthorrhoea / Black Boy) in the final section before the summit, which can take 100s of years to grow. The summit view is beautiful, looking across to Mount French in the distance (including the edge of the face we call "Frog Buttress" in our climbing community - a popular trad climbing spot). The cities of Fassifern and Aratula can be viewed below, and Ipswich is beyond the range after.

A worthwhile hike - don't dismiss it because of the short duration or lack of technicality. What it lacks in length or epicness it makes up for in consistent steepness/gradient, which we included in our hiking plan as part of training for the alps. Glad we did - a beautiful afternoon.

Excellent hike. Great water falls and clear ponds.

Great workout with fabulous views from the top. Have to agree this shouldn’t be rated as easy/for families (with children under about 8 yo), since involves quite a lot of steep rock scrambling and is quite slippery in places. Would grade as a Moderate short walk/climb.

Be prepared to walk up hill! It’s beautiful. Go to Bald rock and soak up the views while you refuel. It’s all downhill from there ;-)
We saw three Lyrebirds along the way!

New track through the forest is much nicer than the previous fire trail route. A few step sections along the way but nothing technical or exposed, although some base level of fitness would be recommended ie. probably not advised for the old or infirmed.

The trail terminates at the Yellowpinch summit at a cliff edge with a dramatic outlook on Mt Barney. Small children should be supervised closely here as there is no safety fence. New info sign points out the peaks and main points of interest.

Great work QPWS, this walk is now very much improved.

Love it

medium hike.
path well marked by tire tracks and easy to follow.

We started our walk from a fenced access located on Wirrabara road heading the Marmaid Mt. Lookout. No signage, however G.Maps has it recorded for gen reference.
Follow the path heading north. The road will split, we followed the Rocky Mountain High path. You re now three hours away from the lookout.
enjoy the view.

a very easy walk. flat path.

A very easy walk. flat trail. wonderful views in parts and the occasional wallaby. Great for anyone is any fitness level
