Did this after a lot of rain so was very slippery for a lot of it. No scrambling persay just steep tracks on loose ground. The majority of it is along a fireroad which hosts some fairly awesome views of Brisbane CBD (enjoy it because there is no view at all at the summit). After the fireroad the track is quite evident until right near the top. Can still find your way up alright but back down can be a bit tricky if you don't know where you're going. Lots of lawyer vines, lots of lantana (including one thick bush that has a path cut through it), and lots of spider webs, never seen so many spider webs, we were covered in them by the end. Was primarily an exercise to test out my new GPS but was a nice walk nonetheless. Similar in difficulty to Flinders Peak (except no view, more spiders, and a lot more falling over). Took us about 3hrs return.

This walk definitely does not take 3 hours return. 3 hours return would probably be feasible if we began and finished where the fire trail ended just before Mt Samson itself. Took us about 4.5 hours return inclusive of some time (30 mins?) spent at the outcrops near the summit and the actual summit itself.

This walk starts out as a bit of an uphill slog along a fire trail. Thankfully there are some nice views along the way to take your mind off the climb. The trail to the summit is reasonably easy to follow right up until about the last 50 meters or so. Watch for lawyer vines near the top. I think 2 hours might be for one way. As a reasonably fit, solo walker it took me about 3 hours return to Basin Road.

Pushed further along the ridge to the north west to the top of a second knoll before dropping down into a gully and following a creek down which swung south east before meeting with another creek that flows south. It took me 2hrs to reach this point due to extremely thick undergrowth with lots of patches of Lantana along the ridgeline and very steep descent down to the creek. No views to be had but a nice sheltered valley of palms to be discovered which was the domain of 3 wild pigs.

Might try and push a bit further along the range next time.
