Description
Waypoints (1)

This grade 4 hike in Queensland’s beautiful Scenic Rim takes you through luscious rainforest to the summit of Mt Cordeaux and Bare Rock. Beginning up Mt Cordeaux track you walk gradually uphill through dense and shaded rainforest and bushland where you’re sure to see and hear a variety of birdlife. After about 3km of steady incline you’ll reach the Mt Cordeaux summit and lookout giving way to great views of the Fassifern Valley. From here it’s highly recommended to continue the walk to Bare Rock which is an easy walk over mostly flat terrain. At the summit of Bare Rock enjoy spectacular views once again of the Main Ranges and the Scenic Rim. Enjoy a snack before heading back to the car park on Cunningham Highway.

Great walk. The path conditions were very good. The hike to bare rock and the lookout with lots of photos and a rest at the lookout took us 4 hrs

Great hike to stretch the legs just off the highway. Took me 2hrs, I only went to Mt Cordeaux and back, but was totally worth the 360 degree view from the top!!

This is a fantastic walk. It is a slow incline to Mount Cordeaux which offer an a great view and a lot of room to sit down and even have something to eat. If you’re up there already I really recommend the walk to Bare Rock. The walk itself is beautiful, fairly flat, and not heavily trafficked. I went on a public holiday and as I was coming down there were a few people coming up (I began at about 7:30 and was coming down at about midday). Bare rock itself is beautiful and has a great view of a cliff adjacent to it. There is also a short walk which splits off, one path goes to Bare Rock (680m away) and the other is Morgan’s walk (350m) so it’s pretty easy to do both. Morgan’s walk was very nice and there is a small lookout at the end of it. I saw a python in the grass at the very end of Morgan’s walk. The tracks are well worn the entire way and well marked. It was 16km to walk from carpark, up mt cordeaux, bare rock, Morgan’s walk and back down. Took almost 5 hours with about 40 mins of sitting at certain places. Really beautiful walk. Wear long sleeves, it was a little chilly.

The trail is quite damp due to rain and it being a rainforest. A slight incline but over all a very easy walk with a fantastic view

The overgrown trail has been cleared. The view on top of Mount Cordeaux and Bare Foot are simply stunning. The rainforest walk and walk along the cliff is beautiful. Not for people with height phobia though. Despite categorised as class 4, it is fairly easy with the gradual up slope.

Great trail, relatively easy ascent, but slippery in some parts when wet. Overgrown in some parts which adds adventure to your hike. View was worth battling the overgrown plants on the trail.

HikingGreat!

Pleasantly surprised with the weather while up there, it was nice and fairly cool even in Summer. Gradual hike so no problem if you walk regularly around Mt Cootha tracks. The scenery is simply breathtaking. Only very small section was muddy but you can easily walk around it, overgrown in part but not bad, very well signposted. Will be back!

HikingGreat!

Loved this hike! Lots of interesting sounds and sights, pretty much shaded all the way up, surrounded by beautiful rainforest. Some parts were a bit overgrown but not too bad. We included Morgan walk, which added around 700m (out and back) - don't bother doing it if you are short on time. After hiking down, we had a quick break at the carpark then proceeded to Mt. Mitchell. If you are planning on tackling both, I recommend doing Mt. Mitchell first as it is a bit more exposed and can get quite hot after 10am. Carpark can get busy so plan for an early start.

HikingGreat!

Me and my mate walked in at 6.45am and out at 12.15pm and had a thoroughly enjoyable walk. Almost immediately we saw 10 or so Paddymelons and the sounds of birds was unreal. We spotted two Green Catbirds, plenty of finch like birds, a few large Wood pigeons and up top we saw two very large eagles plus some Pied Currawongs. The rainforest along the way was beautiful and lush. Although a bit misty on the day the views from Mt Cordeaux and Bare Rock are fantastic. The track is superb and is easy to walk. Although we did not see any, my mate had a leech on his boot when we got back to Brisbane

HikingGreat!Over grown

Had the trail to myself for most of the morning, and after the first km the highway noise disappeared and the peace of the rainforest takes over. Easy uphill for most experienced hikers, the path between Mt Cordeaux and Bare Rock is very overgrown in parts but it’s still obvious which way to go. View from the top was spectacular, and I got to test out my new Jetboil for a cuppa with a view. Definitely recommend. Go early to avoid the heat at the top, but most of the trail is in rainforest so you are protected. Just before Bare Rock there is a marked path to the right (Morgan’s Walk I think?) which adds extra 700m out and back but worth it for a sheltered spot to stop.

Right up there in my list of favourite walks. Lush rainforest, changing scenery, small waterfalls on transit, lots of birds. Summit in cloud, oh well

lovely trail, plenty of variety and a very cruisy gradient. nowhere near as sketchy as parks spiel at trailhead would have you believe. as Sean said very overgrown on ridge past cordeaux, would've been spooked about snakes on a sunnier day. worth the trip to bare rock though, not only for the view but the mossy vibes. had a staring contest with a bowerbird too!

HikingGreat!

First one up today, great track very damp given location and vegetation and unfortunately completed it on an extremely overcast day. Overgrown in spots on way to Bare Rock so snake friendly but none that I saw. Spotted, plenty of birds, wallabies, couple of quolls and a feral cat. Will do this one again!
