A great hike that should be stretched over to 2 days, if not 3. The mountain climb is challenging yet rewarding. We camped by the river after descending from the mountain which was peaceful and beautiful. Don’t under estimate the second half of the walk though! There are multiple steep hills to hike up and the second day is as physically demanding as the first!

Great track, when you reach the bottom of the waterfall take a good rest as you'll be climbing stairs all the way and past the top!

Trail was moderate until I hit greaves creek. Got stuck and lost the trail. Couldn’t figure out how to move forward. So I back tracked and went on an alternate trail. I looked up Luke Ryan’s recording post hike and can see that he also got stuck where I did, but it looks like he figured it out.

Awesome trek. Very hard!!!

great hike with stunning views of the top of Mt Solitary however the loop is longer than the quoted 31 kms we started our hike at Scenic world and had already racked up 35kms by the time we finished at the top of the giant stairway at echo point so would've been at least another couple of kms it took us 12 hours total time so unless you really like a challenge I'd recommend spreading this one over 2 days

Rated hard for a reason, a word of advice... travel light
