Getting there

The Ridge track is in the Goomburra section of Main Range National Park about 175km south-west of Brisbane. The trail starts and finishes on the eastern side of the Manna Gum campground, found in the Goomburra section of Main Range National Park. Turn onto Goomburra Road from either the Cunningham Hwy at Gladfield or the New England Hwy near Allora. Turn onto Inverramsay Rd and continue for about 40km. It changes to Forestry Reserve Rd, and the final ~20km are on dirt road but in normal weather 2wd access is fine. Follow the signs to the Manna Gum campground (just beyond Poplar Flat) and park there; toilets provided here. The track starts (anti-clockwise) at the Manna Gum campground and ends on the fire trail section of the Cascades Circuit.

Route/Trail notes

The start is in very bushy vegetation on a well trodden track. As you venture further onto the trail, it narrows to a nothing more than an overgrown path. The first half of the trail is a fairly steep climb to get to the ridge, thereafter a steady climb to the top. Plenty of spots to turn back and look at the views of Dalrymple Valley. The trail follows the ridge to the top after which the track widens to a fire trail with vehicles tracks. It continues downhill until it joins with the Cascades Circuit. The return section follows this fire trail back to the camp ground.
