It’s a circular trail with decent incline/decline at the valley. I had numerous encounters with lyrebirds and kookaburra. It’s a nice quick morning walk to start the day.

Lots of scrambling and climbing the rocks. I did southern and northern loop in 7 hours. The view was amazing but not so magnificent I would say. Few spots of missing emergency marks. I would have easily gotten lost without GPS.

Did the Wells Cave track 2 days ago and I'm already planning to go back out!
Never before have I done a hike involving rock climbing and going through a cave! Incredible! Not easy, but so worth it.

This was a nice and easy hike. You can walk on the trail or walk on the beach for sections.

Excellent walk. Lots of rock scramble

In summer.....watch for snakes! Crazy climb up Jawbone. Even crazier hiking across the top. Views are pretty good and sides of ridge are not too dangerous. However, definitely not for children. I wouldn’t attempt the full circuit in one go as is quite arduous unless you are fit or experienced. Have good shoes and plenty of water in summer as the heat seems to sit on the backside of the mountain.

A rather unusual type of scenery, quite interesting and easy to hike

loved the hike, pretty hard. Especially up sugarloaf peak, lots of climbing - challenging and a little scary!

lovely walk, good track.

Completed southern loop. Sugarloaf peak via Canyon wells. Gorgeous views up at the peak looking north over the razorback ridge line. Quiet a difficult grade (4) climbing up canyon wells. Not recommended for the average joe. Due to the rock face climb. If up for a challenge, definitely put it on the cards.

We completed the two jawbone peaks walk. Started from the Cooks mill carpark and had a quick bite to eat up at the farmhouse. All in all the walk was very achievable. It was a good walk to attempt for your first walk. The views atop of the two jawbone peaks are amazing. Took us about 4 hrs roundtrip to complete.

A wonderful walk around the gardens here with the highlight being the view from the Trigpoint and tower. Used this as part of my Oxfam Trailwalker 2017 Training schedule.
