Excellent hike with very rewarding views at the end. Basically 3km up & then 3km down. Overall quite challenging mentally & physically. Nice that there are now 1, 2 & 3km signs & with this app you know exactly where your at. The 1/2 way mark spray painted on the rock is not entirely correct. Done this 4 times now over the past 10 years, always say "that's the last time"

Really fantastic trail in the dry season, easy track to follow just really long walk. Beautiful swimming spot at the top! Beware of snakes along the way and can get overgrown but an easy walk. Also quite shaded.

One awesome trip. Not only physically challenging but mentally as well. Walking into the 1st camping ground, o’nite than hiking the next morning. Recommend this way if you’re not keen on lugging a full pack up the mountain. Not much of a view due to the clouds, but the accomplishment is why you push yourself! Amazing rainforest! Don’t forget to look around and enjoy the hike. Solo hiking.End of August no leaches, 4 l of water. Don’t forget to check out the view from the large bolder about the 5km mark!

Great trail with a few steep sections, watch the loose dirt and leaf litter as it's easy to slip. we came across a quite agressive juvenile cassowary on our way back but hid behind trees and he eventually left us alone, although our heart rate probably reached it's peak for the whole trek. when approaching the start of the circuit be sure to look for the sign nailed to the tree and if continuing straight to begin with look out for the arrow carved into a tree besides the track to indicate the way as there a several side tracks and it can get quite confusing.

The trailhead takes some work to get to and didn’t have the best signage. Follow Old Cairns Track and you’ll reach the car park. The views at the top are great! We had a surprise run-in with an juvenile cassowary a kilometer or so from the start of the trail which made things interesting...we gave him some space and he eventually went on his way but not without getting a little too close for comfort.

What an epic trail. One of the best hikes I've ever done. I did it solo in 6hr 40 including stops for food and photos. I'm a 39 year old athletic male, so hike at a good pace. 1500m up and down is a lot in one go and the going is tough. Lots of roots, a boulder field and a few steep sections. No leeches. I was in cloud from 5km on, so no views, but this didn't diminish the hike. The reward is beating the challenge. A view would have been a cherry on top. Lookout for the view spot around 5km, up a fallen strangler fig tree on to a giant boulder.

We were there because we were lost to windin falls, we prepared well, we walked with good mind, but there were many ticks, the leech....omg Anyway, it’s a good track...

Great testing track. Great views at the top. Good test of fitness and agility if trying to do it quickly : )

Fantastic walk, yes a little muddy so bring a plastic bag for dirty shoes, and maybe a change of clothes if you fall in the mud. Great swimming spot at the end, so bathers are a must. Will do again.

Hard trail, 7hours return, take a lot of water. At least 4litres per person. Plenty of leeches but worth it. There is a hut at the summit. The best is to go when is not cloudy. I put 4 stars because it’s really hard. Follow us on Instagram @thecriqs

Very muddy with lots of snakes out sunning themselves. The views were wonderful.

Great track with a even better pay off! Muddy in places and one or two tricky rutted out spots but would happily do again within a heartbeat.

Very cool one ! Just be careful when you cross the river and keep an eye on the pink string on trees

Relentless is a good description. Especially the last km up. Fitness is helpful. Your leg muscles are definitely going to be worked hard. But it's doable and worth it. Just keep going. Took us 3 hours all together (not counting rest and a stop at the top).

We did this trail in the dry season and it was muddy in parts but an easy enough hike, especially if you follow the trail to the end and take the slightly longer route down to the falls as the gradient is much easier (we returned that way.) The water was cool but we had a brief swim. Amazing views and worth the walk considering it’s only 90mins each way max.

Amazing walk through danse rainforest. We came across a snake on the trail, be carefull at all times.

Follow your gps, it's a bit of a path of about 12km. In the turning it is the entrance of the path. Count about 1h30 walk to arrive but the scenery is breathtaking

Took us 4 hours to do track. Very slushy in parts, and difficult to stay upright in the rain. Make sure you take a torch if you leave after lunch. We wore our flip flops without realising how long/difficult this track was and ended up walking it barefoot for 90 percent. We took a small motorhome to the track and even though we had concerns about getting back to the bitumin in the rain at night in July, the van did it with no worries. Type in Windin Falls into google maps and it takes you to the start of this track. No signs mark track, just a couple of parked cars if you’re lucky. Oh, prepare for the leaches. And take a bag for your muddy shoes!

This was a tough trek. Not for the faint hearted. It's a constant climb from the instant you start. The time to complete is spot on 4-5 hours. Pack heaps of water. Good shoes are a must, slippery sections on ascent and descent. Well trekked

Can get quite muddy and rugged along the track if it’s wet. The hike is a sheltered climb to a beautiful waterfall at the top. Stunning views and a spectacular drop from the falls into the gorge. A nice reward at the top. Places to swim further back from the edge. Looks too dangerous to go in right by the falls!

It took myself and a friend (mid 20s and good level of fitness) 7.5 hrs to reach the summit via the eastern track, including tracks. We returned back to the Helicopter Pad camp site (would recommend doing this if you hike). There are quite a number of boulders to climb up from 7.5km to the peak at 9km. Descending this first thing in the morning with cloud cover, wet rocks and a pack would be quite risky. At the camp site there were a number of rats that came for out food. we had everything sealed in zip-lock bags and put away in our pack which was still enough to attract them. Within just 30min of laying down in our sleeping bags they had eaten a hole in my tent. If you plan to camp here I would recommend hard plastic containers and store it away from your pack and tent to avoid it being destroyed!! Despite doing the walk in mid winter there were plenty of leeches (probably close to 100 per person). We were pulling them from our socks every 20-30mins before they had time to latch on properly. I would recommend thick, long socks, that should give you enough time to remove them before reaching skin. There is a marker every km up to the Helicopter pad. We were unable to find the 6km mark on the way up, or the way down. It may just be covered by moss. The rocks and tree roots are extremely slippery, even in the dry season. There are about 10 creek crossings before 4km (the last being at the intersection with Broken nose). Three of the crossing require some caution to avoid slipping into the water or getting your feet wet. Overall, it was certainly a challenging walk with a lot of steep up hill but rewarding to know that we completed it.

Fantastic! Very steep and relentless, good cardio, but not that long which makes it doable. Great views and great terrain.

Great trail and views, the peak was in the clouds when we climbed it which was pretty cool.
