This is a challenging but manageable hike. It took us 4 hours including a few stops and lunch up at the top. You need to keep your eye on the track as it’s a rock scramble for a large section. Stunning views at the top. We did it as an out and back from the carpark not as a loop as the map suggests.

Steady track and amazing views. Jump rope to swing off and bomb into an ICE COLD rock pool at the summit. Family friendly track.

Hiked this trail December of 2017 on our honeymoon. We are two Canadians that thought it would be fun. We found this trail challenging but worth it. We only saw 2 other people the entire time . Near the start it is well marked but as the hike goes on it gets steeper and less obviously marked. You will follow pink ribbons on the trees, they’re pretty evenly spaced, so if you haven’t seen one for a while, you need to retrace your steps. Wear long pants because there is leaches. Also, there are lots of warning signs about cassowaries, we didn’t see any, but we could hear them.

Nice hike to get a little taste of the Daintree

Well marked trail to experience the rainforest. The trail is pretty vertical (lots of root steps) so some scrambling has to be done (one section has a hand rope). Definitely bring lots of water and snacks. The lookout is small and it can get pretty crowded. The views are ok. There are a lot of roots which are very slippery when wet.

Fun to do with the dogs

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.

Good, fun, easy trail in dry conditions.

Great challenging hike.. well we made it a little more challenging by going off the trail by mistake and climbed the rock face to the top! There is a part where it does get confusing but just remember keep going right the 360 views is one of the best I have seen!

The trail is amazing going through the rain forest. The view at the top is amazing. It’s not an easy trail but it’s definitely worth the effort.

Excellent hike. Great water falls and clear ponds.

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!

good workout and enjoyed the changing landscape.

a very easy walk. flat path.

Great walk, very challenging. Our group took 5 hours to complete the climb, awesome veiws of the area from the top worth the effort

Fantastic walk. Very challenging, but views the whole way up on a clear day. A must if you visit Cairns!

The best and most beautiful place I've ever been

Decent 3-4 hour round trip walk with beautiful Secret Falls at the end. Thoroughly enjoyed the falls & swimming here & we had them all to ourselves. Saw a few people heading here on the way back, so the earlier the better. Better to do this one for warmer weather so you can cool off & have lunch at the falls. You may think you have gone too far & haven't reached the falls yet, but there is now a small sign on the left of the track once you hit them & you just work your way through about 5-10m of scrub to get to them.

Very nice winter time walk, was very fresh in the rainforest, but not too cold with long pants & a light jacket on. Definitely would get muggy & uncomfortable to do in the summertime I feel. Really pleasant views & lots of interesting different trees the whole way, but the views at the top were absolutely stunning. took about an hour up & an hour down for this part of the hike, however we went on further to Bare Rock another extra 45 mins up & back & it was so worth the extra km, the view got even better!

cycled from Toombul shopping centre to Everton Park, beautiful ride, no cars to worry about!

Really really pretty, lovely palms and plant life and the waterfall is gorgeous. Great on a sunny day

Nice slow walk, very windy depending on which side of the mountain you are on. All marked trails, at times can be pretty narrow, easy to accomplish. Nice views from the top :)

Very hilly, in fact hardly any flat bits. My gps recorded the walk at 24.2 km and 1388 vertical metres. It took 6 hours 20 mins with just a couple of shorts stops. Near the turning point there are great views of Lake Manchester.

Good basic trip to the top awesome views a good one for people wanting to see what the fuss is about

It’s was great walk, amazing view and I saw a few birds and one wallaby. We though we were getting into a bigger walk by the signs of the park saying 16 and 17 km but I think the real distance it’s what AllTrails suggest. We did it in 4 hours with a couple of short breaks.

Enjoy

Definitely a challenging trail if you are looking at running it, very hilly. Great scenery and awesome view from the look out about 11.5km in, its tricky to spot with no sign posting though. Will definitely do it again though.
