Brian Burke Reserve / House Mountain (Samford)


Moderate climb on well defined vehicle track. Some good views over Samford Valley toward Mt Nebo. Traverses up ridge line enjoying any breeze that's going, also making it a reasonable summer walk/climb, if there's a decent breeze. Very accessible from Brisbane.

No real view to speak of, a decent walk, very quiet.

It is a strenuous walk in the way up though there are flat sections so it’s not too bad. Parts of the path are a bit stoned so care is needed. The only view really was through the trees though if you look back not too far from the top you get a bit of a view from there though it’s not over the Samford Valley.

Enjoyable walk. Some steep sections, though brief. Good x-training hike.

Lovely Christmas eve hike on a well-defined track. :) Parked at the end of Woodview St. Doing the Maragani Ct leg adds a steep descent/ascent to the walk.
