At 632m Mt Edwards is the conical-shaped peak rising beside the Cunningham Highway. The national park was gazetted in 1966. It encompasses Mt Edwards, Little Mt Edwards, part of Reynolds Creek as well as a very nice gorge with pine trees on one side. Walk across the dam wall and then you come to the beginning of the track. It is well marked and rocky all the way up. From the Gorge Lookout there great views of Little Mt Edwards. Be careful at cliff edges. Once at the top there is a survey marker. As well as different lookouts offering many vantage points.

The track was more like 7.5kms. The view from the top was great. Good walk up and down. We took our 2 kids up. There are spots that are steep with loose rocks. The kids found them challenging. We all liked it but not the calf muscles hurting 5 days later still.

Awesome walk...good workout..a couple of cliff edges but nothing too dangerous if you stick to the path ,sign marks the start of the cliffs. can be done with kids but under supervision at all times..a few trees across the path but nothing you cant climb over..watch out for your eyes as heaps of thorns and leaves at eye level...

Myself and my 8yo son made it to the summit, it was a Steep climb in places but the views ... wow .. just breathtaking ❤️ there is one lookout area about half way up which is an amazing view. The summit is roughly 1.5km past the lookout however the path gets steeper from here. Believe me the views are worth it and you can always reward yourself with a quick dip in moogerah dam when you get back down
