This trail is gruesome, especially in the summer heat. Did this today with 2 friends and I honestly think I was 30 minutes away from passing out on the descent because we didn’t bring enough water. Took us about 2.5 hours to get up due to the constant sun and the breaks to conserve water. Took about 1.5 hours to get down. Bring 3-4 liters per person. We have 1.5 liters per person and it simply wasn’t enough. We were practically out at the summit. The hike is constant uphill, with lots of scrambling and roots/rocks. There are portions with constant sun and other parts that have a bit of shade. The descent is tricky due to the scrambles and roots everywhere, so it’s still pretty tricky to do. The view is pretty at the top and it’ll feel very rewarding once you get back to the carpark. But seriously: BRING EXTRA WATER.

Don't underestimate the hike up if you're a beginner. Very much an enjoyable challenge, lots of shade and the path was quite clear for such a rugged trail. 4 sections of rope are currently placed, double check strength before relying on, especially the slack one towards the end that can be used to cross the cambered death drop. Don't be scared, just prepare. Water, and even though shade cover is great come earlier or later during the day. Watch out for stingy, spiky flora. The second roped part is in need of trimming sooner or later too, it's like a hot spiney tunnel. The peak it's really quite nice and peaceful, tranquil even. An interesting rock formation beholds the most ideal viewing spot for Mt. Eerwah. This trail took us 2.5hrs, but we are quite new, I would recommend this trail for if you're looking for a little adventure.

This is such an easy walk. There are a bunch of people working there today and it looks like they are putting heaps of new trees all along the creek bank. Took my puppy and he loved it. It’s fine to have dogs on lead on this trail, there are signs up everywhere. They even provide foggy pop bags at the start if you happen to forget yours but there is no where to get water for them so be sure to bring your own. Lots of bird life on this track too, plenty of Willy wag tails and little ground pheasants (not sure what they’re called). Very peaceful.

Good hike. I started from the red, then blue, then green and then walked to the car park back at the red arrow. They were about 10km and I took 2.5 hours. It’s steep all the first part and getting better when the green starts. I have done in December at 7am but was already hot. Bring a lot of water. When I did it it was dry, I fell down too so be careful.

A very nice walk which I would consider suitable for most people. The first 2km involves all of the climbing up to Turtle Rock and the remainder a beautiful walk heading down. Very nice views are found from various boulders just off the track on the way up. Will definitely do again as I feel it is a good walk for everyone of different fitness levels and a good starting point for people wanting to increase their fitness for future hikes like Lambs head just down the road. This hike is quite exposed so I'd recommend a wide brim hat.

This is a very easy and enjoyable hike. It has a clear pathway.

Trail was closed 2 weeks ago, maybe because of bush fires :/

No access locked gate

The Great Walks trail was technically closed due to fire risk when we went but we walked it anyway, taking it all the way to the Kondalilla Falls circuit. A few steep switchbacks along the way but overall a moderately challenging hiking experience and a satisfying day’s worth of effort. Be sure to take a swim in the rock pool and jump off the rocks (again, it says prohibited but YOLO) before heading back. When you’re near the return you can go down to Obi Obi Creek and wash off the sweat you’ve accumulated again but be warned the steps back up will be rough. Keep an eye out for big monitor lizards! They’ll usually scramble away when they hear you coming but it’s a fun game trying to spot them when they blend in so well.

Nice walk. Someone has kindly set up some ropes for the steep parts. Which are very much appreciated on the descent. Reasonable view from the summit. Met up with Charlie and Rusty (local doggos) who kept me company. Just lovely to have the mountain to myself. Incredibly tranquil.

I only did half the trek starting from Mandalay ave and went towards the Forts walk. It was a lovely hike with some views of the island. Starts off in a relatively shaded area then it opens up. Saw a wallaby and a koala :)

Easy clear path. Interesting to walk through the WWII ruins and you get an AMAZING view of the island at the summit. There is sun exposure, so its better to do so in the morning or later afternoon. There is a water station. Keep an eye out for koalas

Rewarding easy walk, view was great from the pool. Only the very last bit was a bit steep also slippery. Besides, the drive after turnt off from gillies highway to the trail head was beautiful too. Would def go back. Took around 2.5hrs, didnt see any March flies.

Easy straight forward hike. As mentioned previously, it is quite an ascend and could be concidered moderate as some steps are narrow and steep. Fantastic 360 view at the top!! (Little bonus: saw a rock wallaby off the trail)

Beautiful walk would be good to do after wet season as the noise and views would be sensational, still lovely to be out there so glad we went left instead of right to avoid having to come back up those stairs, went during the hottest part of the day saw and heard a few animals would have been nice to have heard and seen more though.

My friend and myself went to walking hiking in cave very beautiful lucky after few weeks later fire burn all of it cave it was sad hopefully will fix it up love to go back again

This circuit is definitely not moderate difficulty. The Dozer & Dam segments are extremely steep & very slippery, with loose gravel & dirt. Have done a fair bit of hiking & these sections are some of the steepest I've done. Also the Nebo Rd break section has a sign up saying its closed off to pedestrians, due to the high chance of bushfires (as of November), which forced me to walk along a dangerous section of winding road with blind curves. Therefore suggest people don't try this trail at the moment as it's currently too dangerous.
