Nice walk from the town. Good steep incline with man made steps and very light scrambling. 30mins up and 12 down on a hot day.

HikingGreat!

Of all the trails I’ve done throughout Australia this is probably the most scenic and most visually spectacular. Great rock pools for swimming and amazing, continually changing scenery

I love this trail, please keep in mind it is extremely exposed so best to do it very early

HikingBugsGreat!RockyScramble

Two sharp turns and 3-4 kms of gravel road to reach the trail. There are no public toilets or public water taps around so come prepared. There is a small park right across the trail and a car park ahead. It is a beautiful shady trail fully marked with signs all the way. The hike is easy compared to Mt Beerwah. Yet you need some sort fitness and upper body strength to reach at the summit. The ascent is full of fun with scrambling, little bit of climbing and hiking. Timing is important. It is best to start early or later in the day. Full 360 degree view when you reach up top. Happy hiking Adventure is out there

Great trail. Fairly easy climb in comparison to scrambles like Tibrogargen. Beautiful views.

Be Warned! Mental preparation is needed for this one but I promise you it's so REWARDING!!! It was a gruelling hike and felt like it went forever, with the grinding inclination of 35-45 degrees. I only made it to the first top opening where the metal staircases were, and I am fit, so when I say it is "rewarding" it must mean it gets better if you breach the peak. Most of it is a scramble after the so called "1km" mark so with care use the roots and stems for leveridge. I didn't see the other progress signs so it was all estimates. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND beginning your hike early in the morning *pre 7AM* as regretfully I began around 9am. Grab yourself a bushman spray a few rings around the ankles/legs as you may fend off leeches at the top half~. DO NOT BE SHY WITH WATER. Follow the pink/orange tapes. The persons did a great job setting those ribbon guides up. (Probably needed to redo or place several extras but I wouldn't worry). It is really moist up there so missteps and slips likely to happen. Start right before the sunrise if you want to properly soak the nature and with your camera. GOOD LUCK

Loved the walk, track was well maintained . Plenty of leeches but it’s part and parcel with the tropics. View was better than expected, want to try when the sun is out next time.

Trail was easier than expected, although the rocks can be slippery at water crossings (I slipped over). Recommend the swim but it’s leechy

Nice easy track. I’m sure the loop is longer then the signs say. Marchflies and a couple of leashes picked up along the way.

WalkingGreat!Rocky

Nice wide, well made path with steps in many areas. Steep and challenging- but plenty of areas to stop and rest if you need. Pretty short and steep. Took us 30mins to get to the top, with a halt midway to chat to a 74 year old local. Rewarded with an amazing view and fresh breeze at the top.

HikingGreat!

This is the best hike I've done in the Cairns area. It took us about 7 hours return for a group of 4 reasonably fit late 20s early 30s. Weather was prime, the views were incredible, zero leeches, 2 snakes. Far easier than expected, the gradient is consistent the whole way up. We went through 3 litres of water each and ran out about 3 kms from the car on the way back - be prepared on a hot day. Ah I loved this hike so much!

Great hike but tough, did cark park to big bend, up to the spur and a few of the side tracks ie moss’s gardens. Took us 10hrs at a good pace with stops for snacks, lunch and a quick dip. View was great, tough uphill climb to the peak, exhausted by the end of the day

Beautiful, fairly challenging hike if you take the longer route to the falls. Great spot for a swim. Recommend the Bushman's Spray, the March flies will have a field day otherwise.

Started 11 October, North to south in 4 nights (Nina bay, banksia bay, Zoe and Mulligan). Very easy walking, I'd rate Zoe to Mulligan as moderate but everything else easy. Mosquitoes are fierce despite deet, long sleeves and coils! we were packed up, walking by about 7:30 and generally arrived at next camp by 10 each day. in contrast to previous reviews heaps of water at the northern end - just have to find the creek bed and head uphill like 20-30m. Beautiful streams full of freshwater prawns ready for a pedicure!

I loved this hike, it was steep in a few parts and there’s chain at the top but it wasn’t too hard & the beautiful views from the top are totally worth the climb up :-)

Completed 07/10/2020 North to South. Broke it down into multiple days to fully enjoy Zoe and Mulligan Falls. My only complaint is I was told the water was plentiful the entire way which wasn't the case on the first two days. Most creeks were dry up until Zoe Bay. So plan accordingly would be my advice. Also, the insects are hellacious. March flies, midges and mozzies. In case you're unaware, March flies and midges are attracted to darker colored clothing. I had mostly black on and I couldn't keep them away. Aeroguard does NOT work nor does most natural repellents. As much as I hate using DEET it's probably your best bet. I also recommend taking some coils for camp. Other than that, it's a lovely hike. Take your time if you can. There's plenty of swimming spots after Zoe. Take advantage and have a good time!

HikingGreat!

What a hidden gem!! I absolutely loved this trail, it felt like a real adventure to go through which was so much fun. Some helpful ropes for steep parts which was very thoughtful. Some small scrambling, climbing. The track itself is quite full on in spots but I loved the variation. All kinds of terrain and all kinds of adventuring - killer! it was a bit muddy and some really slippery spots but just be cautious and you’ll have a blast. After reaching the peak I kept following the track as was recommended. I was a little concerned at how far I was going, I kept thinking surely this little extra view isn’t so far away? But don’t be fooled you’re on the eighth path! Just keep going. It’s a fair way past the peak and you have to go back down the other side of the mountain basically. But there is a second lookout that is SPECTACULAR! You have to do a bit of risky scrambling at the edge to get the best views so it isn’t for the faint hearted. But if you’re up for the challenge do it and you won’t regret it. The second half of the trail isn’t as well marked but I managed OK, just follow the markers and you’ll be right If you’re not up to the second lookup just to the peak and back is brilliant enough as it is! Side note, I wouldn’t recommend taking young kids but that’s just me. There was a family with 2 kids on the track at the time I was there who had to turn around 1/4 through because they didn’t realise how risky/slippery some spots were.
