OMG, never imagined anyone wound put this up as a walk on Aussie Bushwalking. A training ground for bushwalking yes; three years ago we trained on it before taking on Bartle-Frere Western Approach. Now as just part of keeping fit, with 3/4 sets of four: walk down walk up, run down walk up, walk down run up, run down run up. You leave a drinks bottle at the top and place a pebble down for each lap. It is great fun in the dark, as not only do you have to negotiate the steps, but also the cane toads that jump across!

We just did it once while there was a break in the rain. We counted 147 steps. Great workout. Once was enough for me.
