Got a bit muddy in the lower sections and a bit boring as you're on a 4WD track but the upper sections are brilliant. Wear good boots due to some of the muddy sections.

I must admit that this was probably the hardest trial I have done so far since I started following All Trails app. I believe the best way for you to do the trial follows the starting point the app suggests (the way back is really steep and rocky so, better to do in your way down the opposite). Right now the Chute Trail has a really muddy, challenging and hard zone which will take a good part of your time as you need to go down and up the hill slowly. That was, in my opinion, the hardest part of the trial. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go if there was raining for the last few days. The view once you reach the top of the mount is absolutely breath taken. I would also recommend a stop to the Coffee Shop (nice and not price).

First half of this trail are extremely uphill be aware, and can be really slippery/muddy when wet. Second half of the trail definitely makes up for it and the scenery is beautiful.

Walked clockwise from memorial site, would recommend this route. Chute road extremely steep, great hike however very dusty.

there isn’t really proper parking at this entrance but on the side road there is room for 1-2 cars. the first 1.2 km is a very step slow climb, but the rest is quite easy going. the majority of the trail is lovely bush, with the backend being replanted evergreens. watch out for mountain bikers as there are trails they ride through the back end.

We went clockwise on this trail, starting at the memorial lookout. The descent is steep and rocky through beautiful woodland. I liked going this way as the ascent near the end was more gradual.

Loved this hike. Turn left and follow bawden rd from the car park towards the trail. There’s a few extra trails that are not on the map so check your gps when you encounter forks. I never saw another person until I got near the memorial site. Complete peace and tranquility. A few kookaburras and other birds, plus one shy echidna. The view from the top is beautiful. I didn’t find the incline too steep. The decline is steep and slippery with fallen eucalyptus leaves. The walk is fine in runners. Take about a litre of water. I think it’s closer to 10K than 7.9. The memorial site has a cafe, toilets etc if you want to stop for a rest.

Definitely some real steep sections and recommend going the direction indicated on the guide. The downhill on the way was quite slippy with the dry dust. Take cash with you if you want to stop at the Cafe at the top.

Was actually 11km. 3.5hr

lots of loose rocks and leaves marking it easy to slip over. but overall and good inclined hike

Excellent well maintained trails, forest terrain is a great change from the usual bush tracks. Steep at the start will be testing but more than manageable for anyone with a degree of fitness, after that it’s all much easier as you travel the rim between the three peaks, before the steep descent (watch the rocks and footing here). The tall tree canopy during the majority of the hike makes it great for most weather conditions Highly recommended

moderately hard

Worthwhile walk, enjoyed the sights. Enjoyed the pub at the end. Lots of rocks in sections and trail in the shade most of the way.

Moderate-Hard trail. Very steep incline and declines occasionally, but beautiful trail. Viewing point at the top has a great view.

Some food for thought - my boarder collie picked up a “bush tick” here last Sunday. I would suggest being proactive & using a tick prevention prior to bringing your dog up here. With 2 vet visits ($175 + $160) and the threat of a full shave and further medication ($1000) in the unlikely, but possible, event that it was a paralysis tick, I would say it’s better to be safe than $335 - $1500 poorer.
