The trail is great for trail running and normally takes 1 hour or less. Section 1 : Paten rd to Maculata Track Stony fire trail and some single track Grade : little strenuous minor technical steep ascent Section 2 : Maculata Track Love this section. Fabulous fast flat section - barefoot heaven Grade : easy non technical flat Section 3 : stringy-bark track to Simpsons falls Single track well maintained nice downhill through beautiful cot-tha bush into lush area of Simpsons falls Grade : non technical rock stair decent Section 4 : Road return Not very exciting retuning around the road but prefer circuits to retuning on the same path. All in all nice run

Relaxing hike. My wife and I did this hike several times while exploring on the weekends when we lived in Brisbane. It is an easy access....you can bike there, take public transportation, or drive. Great plants and wildlife. The view of Brisbane is great at the top.
