Mt Marlow - Many Peaks Track

Excellent walk for the views, traverses open forests and semi-deciduous vine thickets along the side of the peaks. The summit of Mt Marlow provides superb 360 degree views of the wetlands and coastline. You can complete a circuit by returning via the Lagoon Trail or the Freshwater Trail through the wetlands. These trails provide excellent opportunities for viewing wetland birds.
Only the middle sections of the Many Peaks Track are considered hard. The other sections are medium, and the Lagoon and Freshwater Trails are easy shared bicycle/walking trails. Mosquitoes can be a problem at certain times of the year, so bring some repellent. Winter is the best season. Refer to the track notes below.

Hell Hole Falls

This is a well kept secret, that not even many of the locals know about! A strange name for such a beautiful place; it is a series of deep rock pools linked by small waterfalls before the creek plunges over the cliff into the Tweed Valley.
This rock formation is not part of Mt Warning's eruptions, but dates back before that time to the Chillingham volcanics.
A place for a cooling swim, picnic and to enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings. It is rumoured that the waters of the rock pools contain a natural hair conditioner that lasts for weeks.

Merdian Hill , Beerwah State Forest

This walk up Merdian Hill is moderately steep but very short so whoever graded it easy is correct. The view from the top is nice but not spectacular, glimpses of Ewen Maddock through the trees. It's hardly worth making a special trip just for this walk, but combined with a few other walks in the area makes a nice day out. For starters, in the same location but on the other side of Old Caloundra Rd there are several short walks through wet woodland type vegetation, eg lots of candlestick banksia. Take the walking trails further down Old Caloundra Rd to get away from the traffic noise on Steve Irwin Way. Add a walk around Jowarra Section of Mooloolah River NP and/or Dularcha NP, both an easy drive from Meridan Hill. That makes a really nice day out.
