Not quite sure why this walk is marked as medium. The Kokoda part is really hard. We started at the bottom and walked up The Kokoda section. It sure does get the heart pumping. One lady we met was training for the real Kokoda track. She was just going up and down the last 200 meters. So steep. The Jacksonia track is much easier and pleasant.

Started at Gap Creek Road and walked to Bielby Road, then turned around and went up Kokoda Trail and down Jacksonia. It was tricky in places, but we were determined to get to the top and we did. Awesome walk.

Nice walk, drops around 190m before regaining this vertical height on Kokoda Trail. Completed circuit in 48 minutes.

I walked this loop down Kokoda and up Jacksonia... A challenge to stay on my feet down the very steep and loose Kokoda. Fun though!!
