Completed the circuit today starting with Firetail, along bridle up fantail and back along pardalote. Lovely peaceful walk and not too steep.

Did this as a circuit with the Bridle trail. Lovely and good surface. It's currently closed as a bit of tree fall, but easy to pass still.

Had a bit of spare time in Toowoomba, so headed out to Picnic Point and on a late Sunday afternoon ticked off this walk down the hill, with its great views of the human ants scrambling up Mt Table Top.

Lots of zig zags. Saw a large legless lizard today. Gets dark quite early as this track is east-facing. Don't leave it too late or the walk can be pretty gloomy.
