This a a fantastic and varied hike to the summit of Lamb's Head. Walk would range between 4-6hrs depending on fitness levels and stoppages. I recommend taking a few litres of water and some snacks. It is best during the dry winter season. The views at the top are absolutely amazing and there are several viewing points if you follow the 'sometimes hard' to see small pink ribbons. One view faces north/north-east over Cairns and the other is west/north-west. It truely is the one of the best hikes in the region. Afterwards you can find many beautiful rock pools at Davies Creek to swim in.
