Mostly an overgrown old road. There's a steeper hike, near the yellow sign about 1km in that might be more interesting. Had to turn back 60% in because of bad weather, but what I did see wasn't worth it.

HikingGreat!

Overgrown track, sometimes walking in waist high grasses. Beautiful trees but not much in the way of landscape views. I was the only one on the track today.

Nice clear trail. A bit anticlimactic, but there are some good views not far off the trail. Not the best in the area, but still worth a crack!

HikingGreat!Rocky

Great track, hardly any people which is what we loved! Took 2.5hrs but we also took a wrong turn about 1.5-2km out of the way. Be sure to turn right at the sign on to Mt Chowan Rd (rookie error!). Nice and steep at the end, have the right foot wear with you and you’ll enjoy yourself!

A beautiful long steep walk. 5 hr return with breaks. Nice Eucalypt forest with a few rainforest trees as well. Lots of Xanthorrhoeas, Grasstrees near the top.

Great track, average views. Awesome steep climb up rocks at the end. Highly recommend proper shoes for this one. The track can continue down the other side of the mountain if you want to get picked up on the other side.

Nice hike up through scrubby forest on a maintenance road. The maintenance road has a parallel bike trail and they repeatedly join up. Best views are from the maintenance road. Quite steep in parts so reasonable fitness is required. We went of trail to the summit and found the old trig at the very top. Beware the giant bull ants :) ....I recommend choosing a mild temperature day. Take plenty of water and hat etc + gators are good. You can return via the bike trail to mix it up but be prepared for more steep bits.

First to Review

Nice walk up a nicely graded trail. Not too many views, but what you do se it beautiful. The last 500m or so if a hard slog up a badly rutted trail, but not really difficult, the a bush bash to the broken trig on top. A fun walk.
