Amazing view! Great for family. One section of the trail have sloping steps, requires extra care.

I have a fear of heights so I found it a bit tough going to, but vide from the top is stunning. I would rate the walk on the ‘harder’ side of moderate - and watch out for snakes! Great trail though and there is a smoothie van at the start of the trail which is yummy!

The trail gets worn over the years, some loose rocks on trail, be sure to choose landing carefully when descending.

The hike itself is without much interest, however you do it for the view from the top. Go early to beat the heat but you won't beat the people. Popular for fitness training in the morning. Mozzies can be horrendous as they were the last time i did it 5th March 2018. Its definitely a must do when visiting the Sunshine Coast.

Good view from the top reminiscent of some Hawaiian trails for scenic view. However, I would rate it more difficult than moderate for mature aged people like me.

Amazing view. Go early. Went about mid day the first time and was pretty hot. Other than that, great hike.
