medium hike.
path well marked by tire tracks and easy to follow.

We started our walk from a fenced access located on Wirrabara road heading the Marmaid Mt. Lookout. No signage, however G.Maps has it recorded for gen reference.
Follow the path heading north. The road will split, we followed the Rocky Mountain High path. You re now three hours away from the lookout.
enjoy the view.

Great and challenging walk but poorly signed throughout for knowledge on which way to turn when at crossroads. Highly recommend GPS for determining whereabouts / if you're still on the track as we took a road that looked well traversed but led off the track.

Very, very steep in places for a few hundred metres at a time.

If not poorly signed it would have earned 5 stars.

To be clear, there were no trail signs!

Some of the hills were a little bit steep and slippery for me - had to do a little bit of scrambling to get to the top.

Enjoyed the work out and the view at the top though.

Definitely make sure you have a map as there many unmarked turns. The walk starts down a road marked "private property" and there's a sign at one of the turns saying "authorised personnel only". We were never challenged though. In fact, we only saw 2 other people in the whole 3 hours we were out there.

Some steep hills, but a good area with wide well maintained tracks
