Route/Trail notes

From the Yellowpinch carpark walk up the hill until you reach the swinging gate that leads to the start of the National Park. At the gate immediately turn right and begin heading up the hill. Care must be taken on ascenty and descent as there is loose rock and scree on this hike. Follow the trail all the way to the summit where you will find great views of Mount Barney. Recommend an early morning walk and watch out for steep drop offs and cliffs at the top of the summit. Children must be supervised at the summit. Great walk for those camping for a few days in the National Park or surrounding camping sites and resorts.

Comments

Short but steep walk with nice views from the summit. Have uploaded photos of the two gates. The first gate is near car park & the second is further up a trail wide enough for vehicles. At the second gate the path veers to the right & narrows. Would be nice in conjunction with Lower Portals during cooler weather.

Hard walk because I am unfit. Inspired to get fit and do more hiking.

Great walk with awesome views. Bit sloppy at times so need to watch your feet.

Maybe 45min return. Great view of Barney at the top (and cell service). Nice to stretch the legs.

Nice walk! Good way to warm up for a weekend of climbing. As soon as we saw Barney from this view we had to conquer it!

Nice little leg stretcher. Went over the top and down the north side to the creek. Then rock hopped downstream and found a great swimming hole. Excited via a farm back on to the yellowpinch road.
