Lots of spiderwebs on narrow trail makes this nice track less fun for trail runners.

Most breathe taking scenery and truly life changing experience! Would do every year!

This is a nice track. Plenty of challenging hills (of the uphill and downhill variety). Nice scenery, also opportunities to see wildlife (saw some roos, sheep, horses and a snake). The campground at the Cox's River had water in the tank, but the other campsites not so lucky so be sure to take plenty of water.

Wow! Absolutely beautiful heathlands plus spectacular views! Check weather though because you wouldn’t want to be caught out there in a storm!

Great veiws!

a well maintained track that provided remarkable views.

The Alltrails directions bring you to an ample parking lot and picnic area. We were welcomed by two kangaroos, and saw another pair near the end of the loop. Since we are from the US, that was a big deal for us. We also saw lots of birds - one looked like a red parrot. The hike is mostly flat, with one somewhat steep hill. Amazing lake views. Trail is well marked, and as another reviewer mentioned, there's a spot near the end (if you go counterclockwise) that has tall grass and the marks are hard to find. In that case, keep along (and inside) the fence and the markings eventually reappear. A couple spots had quite a few flies and grasshoppers. We brought insect repellant, and that appeared to work well. We totaled just over 15 km. Temp was in the 20 - 22C range, and we needed about 1 liter of water per person. Only saw three people on the trail (and one person on a bike on the road near the dam). Signs indicate that no dogs are allowed, but we did see some dog poop along the way.

Uneven and rocky, can get narrow at times. Sheltered from the sun on hot days. some rock formations to explore, a nice short walk if you have young kids or just starting out.

For a hiker from the US, Lane Cove Loop was breath taking. First, the sounds are amazing. Birds, frogs, and other creatures greet you and serenade you throughought the trail. We saw a wallaby, lots of cockatoos, iguanas, lizards, and a snake. I couldn't identify the type of snake, and it dissapeared in the bush before I could get a picture. It was brown, with a light stripe along both sides. The aprox 8-mile trail is shady, well marked, and on the easy side of moderate. Most of it is flat, with occasional boulders and brief/mild climbs. You'll find a couple campgrounds and restrooms along the way.

This is great early morning walk, took us 2:33 minutes with medium pace !

Good shoes and the better part of a day. Definitely feeling by the end.

Easy and quick walk to the peak, a bit steep but nice views.

Good view from the top reminiscent of some Hawaiian trails for scenic view. However, I would rate it more difficult than moderate for mature aged people like me.

Well marked, with a combination of bouldering and graded trails. Some very steep sections requiring scrambling across large, steep rockfaces; definitely requires a good degree of fitness. The views however are definitely worth it. Do not attempt in wet conditions, and bring decent shoes.

The trail from Golden Stairs (or Scenic Railway) is nice, lyrebirds are very common. The 360 degree view atop the Ruined Castle is utterly magnificent

This track has been closed for some time due to extensive damage from tropical cyclone Debbie. It’s advised to check with Qld Parks and Wildlife first. (8/1/18)

Moderate trail good for family, not suitable for seniors.
Enjoy the beautiful views on Perth Hills and Perth plains. Dont miss the walk up to falls bottom. Pause and enjoy the breeze overseeing Perth suburbs and city.

super easy. if you walk on the sand (if the tide is right) on the bay side, then either take the stairs for a much faster way up and a better workout. alternatively there's the longer but easier path which gently winds up the hill. stunning views!
