the walk going down was ok it was the going up that was a bit hard still enjoyed the walk very nice views of backstairs passage

Great average hike for rookie hikers. Amazing sense of achievement when reaching the top.
Hike takes about 1.5 hours one way.
Highly recommend.

Great hike. Contained some fairly strenuous sections though was well worth it for the amazing views at the top

pretty good walk, taken the dog up there twice now. wouldn't say it was kid friendly to be honest it's tough going in some spots.

Amazing views

It’s been the favourite for many years now. In terms of fitness, I have seen the results come real quick while I was doing it every week.

A really nice hike through the Bunyeroo Gorge, lots of beautiful red cliffs and nice shade throughout the walk. The only downside to the hike was the last 500m. It is a bit of an anti-climax as it ends outside of the gorge and has no shade or view compared the the rest of the walk. Make sure you look out for the goats hiding in the cliffs!

It was a great walk but as the description says the signage isn't the best.


fantastic one!

Lovely walk with some steep sections. Fantastic view of the city from the lookout.

Great to see wildlife and city view. Heavily used compacted path.

A good walk for views, koalas, the Giles homestead ruins, and moderate ascending and descending exercise. Koalas are in the gully west of the Giles homestead ruins.

One of my favourite loops out near the barossa. Plenty of kangaroos.

Easy hike through bushland and rocky escarpment. Gorgeous views

Great easy walk, paths are well kept! Has other hiking options, if you enjoy testing yourself head up to the lookout

Had an early start, leaving camp around 3am. Arrived at the summit at around 6am to watch the sunrise. Challenging hike with 10kg packs but well worth the reward!

A must see if you care about aboriginal history

good views and you can take the pooch

Nice walk, lots of birds.

Run this regularly with a head torch. The trail is really well maintained and is quite wide as its used for fire vehicle access as well. Recommended for a non technical run with reasonably easy ascents. Total elevation gain is about 230m on an anti clockwise loop according to my watch. Great on week days but gets really busy on weekends.

Love the views on this, the hill will kick your arse

Good walk

What a nice hike, the creek is wonderful, wildlife is rich, the waterfall is quiet. The steep sections require good shoes and to be confident on rocky paths.
$10 fees apply for a day entry permit.

Great fun, especially after a little rain. Usually quiet.

Can extend up to lofty summit if desired.

When I was there the trail was under construction so I missed some of the waterfall action and the detours were in the sun :(

Still a nice trip and the top is cute with a gift shop and cafe.
