Peak and creek Trails

Queensland

Today we drove the Mt Norman day use area on mt Norman road and set off on the Peak trail. A non strenuous walk with a lovely view of Mt Norman. Until we got to the end of Peak trail where there is a junction to join creek trail. We chose to take the left fork after a few hundred meters we came to a pretty rock clearing with lovely water path ways across it. It has been raining a fair bit and was drizzling at the time. Finding the exit from this rocky outcrop was really hard there were no visible markers and after much hunting we found a trodden path and followed it. After about 1 km we found ourselves at underground creek which we had been to the day before so thankfully knew where we were, as underground creek has no signage at it. These two paths are not even meant to meet up, clearly the well trodden path we had taken is one many others have found themselves confused by and ended up at. We carried on to the dr Roberts day use area and trekked back along Pyramids road and back onto mt Norman road to the northern day use area and set ourselves back on course of the creek track. To be honest after the lovely view of mt Norman there’s isn’t really much else going for the hike. It’s quite a monotonous hike, but if you want to mountain bike it it would be an awesome challenge. The great thing for us was we didn’t see anyone else at all.

The only ones we got were on the board at the start of the walk

Route/Trail notes

An easy hike with great views of mt Norman at the start of the peak trail from the southern entry point, after that it’s a bit of a monotonous walk which is fine if you want a walk you don’t have to think about, would be enjoyable on a mountain bike I’m sure, to help pass the journey.

Pretty easy walk not to strenuous. Got a bit monotonous but was useful as a last day at the park walk that doesn’t require any thinking about.
