Route/Trail notes

Follow the firebreak behind the sliprail seven hundred meters to the bottom of a rocky ridge.  At a clear signed track on left, take the trail directly up the rocky slope to the summit of Wickham Peak.  Once on top of the peak, for a longer walk follow the Calytrix Circuit signs to add 3.6km's to your walk, making 7kms total.  This trail traverses through sandstone heath country and takes you to Grass Tree Loookout.  Once this circuit is complete, follow the Wickham Peak trail in reverse to return to vehicles and trail head.

A decent walk. Rock hopping was loads of fun but the views aren't that spectacular. Wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Quick one for an afternoon or morning. Great views. Mostly fire trails with 150-200m rocky slope sections.
