Nice bushland walk around 4.8km for the loop. Well signed and easy to follow with plenty of birds, wallabies and the odd snake. The track is split into two marked trails Blue (the easier section) and Red (more hills), with a White trail shortcut joining the two.

Nice walk but please note this track is NOT dog friendly! We discovered on arrival (with our pooch in tow) that SEQ Water regularly baits in the area for wild dogs. Were also advised by a compliance officer that domestic animals are not allowed as it is within a drinking water catchment area.

A fairly u remarkable walk with a few hills at the beginning to get the heart started. Not a bad way to spend an hour.

Completed both the red and blue sections of the track, some gentle inclines but nothing too strenuous. Towards the latter part of the blue track the trail is not as well maintained, lots of overgrowth and long grass where we came across a snake. There is a small creek crossing which requires a good jump to complete, though this may be larger due to all the recent rain.

Steep parts but if you miss out the left side of the red track it would be a really pleasant walk. My 4 year old managed it but did skip once or twice

Nice walk, some hilly areas with lose gravel so be sure of your footing on the steeper sections. With the recent rain it's nice to see it all green again.

Easy walk. Saw plenty of Walabies, birds and a lovely tree snake. Whilst I was close to North Pine dam, I did not see the water.
