Great trail to go for especially on sunny days. It is a moderate climb, it’s quite popular so you will have company all the time. It get quite busy from morning to noon. You will have to give way to people coming down. It’s a stepped climb so it’s is not wheelchair accessible. But it is kid friendly, kids will enjoy it. I saw very cute 5-6 year olds on the hike, Beating the adults. It is a 2 hour return no matter how slowly you go. I would suggest take your time and enjoy the breathtaking views as you hike. Happy hiking

The trail is good but it is way too full of people and it is too easy

lovely quick hikeit is steep but has steps made from stone to lead you up . says in the carpark 2 hour return but it only took me 15 mins to climb up so maybe roughly 15-35 min climb up. you do have to concentrate coming down the steps so you don't fall !

Great hike. Steep with a few sets of stairs and lots of upward walking. Not too vertical, no need for hiking shoes or equipment. Normal joggers will do just fine. Beautiful view at the top of the coast and beaches. Easy climb.

Relatively easy climb which takes less than 40 mins. The view on the top is astonishing. Good to plane spotting in Sunshine Coast airport.

Great view of the coast. Very easy climb. Did it with my 3 year old. He only needed a little hand in the way down.

I do this fairly regularly and always enjoy the accomplishment. Today I rode my push bike there from Peregian and then hiked up and down then rode back.... my legs have sure had a workout today. highly recommend this track, it's so accessible and depending on pace most can do it, you can make it as hard or as easy as you wish.

Great for a hike. Rock steps make it tricky and challenging on the way down. Busy track and view at top was awsome.

an easy "trail" with stone steps. well worth the walk when you see the view from the top. 360 degree views of the ocean or the hinterland; your choice.
