This trail is very popular both for the locals and tourists alike. This trail is used predominantly for fitness and other associated outdoor activities. There are quite a few tracks to choose from depending on your levels of fitness and all offer some great views of Townsville CBD and surroundings, Cape Cleveland and Magnetic island. It is popular with tourists also as it offers great sunset photo opportunities. The most used is the Goat track and the Dianela Trail ( currently closed ) to the summit trail. The Goat track is quite a difficult track as it is very steep and has lots of uneven steps to reach the carpark (well over 500) and a few more to the summit for good measure. If you are not that adventurous Castle Hill Summit can be accessed on foot, by bike or car via the road. It is quite steep but manageable. It is more even and no stairs. (Except to the summit walk)
