Wilson's Peak (Main Range National Park)
1 May, 2017
Very Hard
8km
5 hrs
Easy enough to navigate as you have the fence to guide you. The last part around then up the peak is easy enough. The steeper parts along the fence up towards the peak make this walk worthwhile as it can be challenging. The view is limited but nice. Took just over 3 hours for the round trip.
Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney Summit)
22 Apr, 2017
Very Hard
13km return

Started just after it had been raining so it made for some slippery spots. Great views but a little clouded in. Did the west peak as well before heading down. Had lots of fun with this walk.

Boonah to Ipswich Trail (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
11 Feb, 2017
Very Hard
19km
7 hrs
Went from Hardings Paddock to Flinders Plum picnic area including the Mount Blaine Summit Trail. Just over 13km and three hours it took. The Goolman Trail wasn't too hard with some moderate inclines and just as many declines. Would definitely be a little more taxing going from Flinders Plum to Hardings Paddock. Plenty of signage and easy trail to navigate as it is an off road vehicle track the whole way. Mount Blaine Summit was a little taxing at the end but well worth the views it provided. Very good idea to have a pick up at the other end, although if you manage it right the return trip from Hardings Paddock to Mount Blaine Saddle and back would be about 24km in total which would take about 6 hours at a good steady pace. Will be trying this option next time now I have seen the trail. Didn't do from Flinders Plum around Flinders Peak part of the track though which would make up the extra 7km or so but probably one that could be done in a return trip from the picnic area if you don't have a pick up at its completion. Hope this info helps.
Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)

Hard

3.5 hrs
A good challenging trail in parts. Easy to navigate and awesome view all along the way. Took about two and a half hours up and back and was about 6.5km
Mt Cordeaux (Main Range National Park)

About 13km if you include Bare Rock. A relatively easy walk with some very stunning views, on a clear day!!
Gamlen Circuit (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
Jan, 2017
Medium
3km
1 hr
Do this on a semi regular basis as a circuit run, usually completing two laps of the circuit, which is a total of about 5km or so. I find it more challenging if you take the Goolman Lookout trail then turn up towards the Rocky Knoll and coming back down to the paddock area. A good run, would be an easy walk though.
White Rock Multi-User Trail (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)
2017
Easy
6.5km return
2 hrs
A very good trail run with the incline towards white rock quite challenging. Loop around the rock and you will meet back up with the trail where you turn off left to go up to the rock on the way there. I take the little white rock lookout trail on the way back before finishing off the run back at the car park. Just over 7km if you do it that way.
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)

Hard
6km return
5 hrs
Challenging track with some scrambling involved along the way. Great views and a fun hike. Have done this one a few times now and takes about 3hrs for a round trip.

A good relaxing moderate walk. Not too much to see on the way up but the view at the top is fantastic!!!
