Great way to start the day. Loved the gentle start of this walk and one of the prettier tracks on Mt Cootha. Definitely a heart starter at the end but very achievable. Completed in an hour.

Jacksonia section was very easy. Kakoda hill was steep but not too long. 1hr 15 which included an extra 600 mts and a short break

Beautiful after the rain. Kokoda always gets my heart pumping. 1 good hour up Kokoda, down Jacksonia

Yes the Kokoda section is very steep, however as i went down this section and back up Jacksonia it was quite achievable

Easy walk, I would not class medium, for a challenge link this with Kokoda trail and finish walking up the Kokoda

Wander on 14 Feb, 2016

Easy walk, not sure why classed as medium. Finish the walk off going back up the Kokoda. Nice steep climb to the road.

Not quite sure why this walk is marked as medium. The Kokoda part is really hard. We started at the bottom and walked up The Kokoda section. It sure does get the heart pumping. One lady we met was training for the real Kokoda track. She was just going up and down the last 200 meters. So steep. The Jacksonia track is much easier and pleasant.

Started at Gap Creek Road and walked to Bielby Road, then turned around and went up Kokoda Trail and down Jacksonia. It was tricky in places, but we were determined to get to the top and we did. Awesome walk.

I felt like Katniss Everdeen running down the Jacksonia trail. So quick.
