loved this trail! the 'falls' were just puddles only due to lack of rain. the view at the top is spectacular! theres a cafe up the top too. I saw another trail on the other side of the mountain for next time! compared to other mountain hikes, the walk is easy! Bubblers along the way and toilets at start and finish

30 mins slow walk up the Summit along a dirt path with some stairs. Recommend parking at JC Slaughter Falls car park or close by.
Often very busy of a weekend morning, but still very enjoyable.
The Mahogany Track is longer, less scenic, but pleasant and generally follows the road up to the summit.

Good trail. Nice and steep at the end for a good leg stretch. Lots of walkers and mountain bike riders on the weekend.

Not a great track. Straight up a hill- more of a fire track then a walking track.

great walk,bit of hill work

loved it.especially all those steps going up Jacksonia Trail.great for the leg muscles

Good workout hike.early morning birdsong

Great walk,for fitness

This trail takes 1hr easy pace. Lots of steps. There an probably side trail to the aboriginal circuit trail that takes an extra 20min. It's worth checking it out. If walked after a heavy rain there would be a flowing creek by the trail n waterfalls in different sections.
Nice to start from the slaughter falls picnic area. Lots of beautiful big old trees at the picnic area. Nice place to picnic.

Quite steep up n down. Good griping shoes recommended. You don't want to slip.

It's a pleasant walk through the scrub to the picnic area then a climb up a dirt road mountain. App was handy to see where to go as not enough signage in places.

Family hike. Kids struggled a little with the step sections. Average scenery.

A bit hard, mostly steep on the way up to the summit but good training/exercise walk.

It was a nice hike to get some exercise. Not much to see.

It was a nice, easy track. It is well signed and easy to follow. Also, very well maintained with a great view at the top!

It was alright, probably won’t do it again. Slipped a few times on the steep gravel parts and we kept having to check the map due to intersecting trails and poor signage. The end part was nice tho.

Not a bad little hike, not many views, but a good start for o get back into it.

Good, fun, easy trail in dry conditions.

Awesome view!

It was a nice walk with a few hills to push myself.
The road part was disappointing.. Also, not many views. But overall I enjoyed it.

It’s ok, good for a stretch of the legs, no views though.

Pleasant, light walk that can be done by pretty much anybody. Lots of people with children and dogs on the trail.
Downside is the large section by the road.

Nice walk with a great view and restaurant at the top.

Relaxing hike. My wife and I did this hike several times while exploring on the weekends when we lived in Brisbane. It is an easy access....you can bike there, take public transportation, or drive. Great plants and wildlife. The view of Brisbane is great at the top.
