This is an incredible hike for the whole family, but don't underestimate it! The track leads into some moderate scrambling/rock climbing near the top, so you will work for the amazing views that stretch far over southeast Queensland. The rocky outcrop summit of Mt Maroon is a popular attraction for walkers, especially on weekends, so if you want to have a bit more solitude on the trail it is best to start early. There is almost no shade throughout, so make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen! There is a part of the trail where some people make a wrong turn. About 2/3 up the trail, it gets slightly confusing because you reach what appears to be a fork, where people have started walking up to the left off the track. When you get to this point, you'll see a yellow arrow, and then you'll see the trail go downhill quite steeply for about 50 meters and wrap around a rock face edge. You need to go downhill at this juncture.

Absolutely brilliant. A really good push all the way to the top. Trail is fairly well marked but keep your eyes peeled especially on the way down

A favourite trail! Fabulous views from the top. Uphill all the way with some scrambling near the peak but nothing that took us outside our comfort zone. Windy at the top - would be freezing in winter.

Lovely walk. Solid incline from the start. PAth pretty straightforward to follow. Sort of need to keep an eye out more than other walks. Good views at the top. Good sense of achievement

Rock climbingBugsFloodedGreat!MuddyRockyScramble

Lots of fun, solid scramble. Easy to get lost if you don’t keep an eye out for the orange markers. Summit is worth it and not that hard to get to so long as you’re not adverse to rock climbing. Popular spot, went on a sunday and met heaps of hikers. People climb on the other peak and slack line, very cool. Don’t go when wet, pissed on the way down. Kind of scary lol

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

An excellent workout, very steep from the start. Wouldn’t advise attempting unless you have reasonable cardio, and enjoy rock scrambling. The path is pretty obviously worn, with orange marker arrows showing the way. Wouldn’t attempt in the wet, as it could be very slippery. We were lucky that it was a light sprinkle on the way up, and cleared as we were on the way down. Very windy on top, but 360 degree views that are spectacular, and a long ridge line to explore on top. Took us about 3.5 hours, with a number of quick stops on the way up.

HikingGreat!Off trailRockyScramble

Pretty tough climb. Easy to get lost of you miss the orange marker especially after the no stopping zone. Excellent views at the top. Took about 4.5 hours to complete but an hour added as I got lost in the false peaks.

Rock climbingGreat!RockyScramble

Great hike... very much uphill most of the way. The scramble section feels like you’re climbing up the inside of a waterfall, can feel dangerous if you slip you will def be hurt. But most satisfying.... listen to everyone’s advice and follow the orange triangles down the valley to get to the top. So worth it
