Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)
7 Jan, 2017
Hard
6km return
5 hrs
Short dirt road into 'carpark'. Wonderful views and great hike. Steep in parts and would recommend a moderate to high level of fitness and 3-4 hours return depending on how fast you ascend - quite exhausting in parts. Steepest part is just after the track veers downhill then up a gully or sorts, good footwear recommended. The scrambling isn't too exposed, but may worry first time scramblers in a couple of bits. Awesome 360 degree views. Track is a little hard to follow in parts - if you get you'll know though, follow the yellow markers on rocks here and there.

Steep and exhausting but not too long. Very nice views! Take DEET in case of ticks, lots of overgrown vegetation.
Mt Greville (Moogerah Peaks National Park)
Apr, 2016
Hard
6km return
3 hrs
Great walk. However track is non-existent after the first few hundred meters of Palm Gorge, I ended up crossing over to the ridge trail much earlier than the tracks converged on OSM as I couldn't find the track. Ridge trail is brilliant and the views are fantastic, follow the arrows on the rocks and the cairns and you won't get lost, most of the ridge is well worn.
