Somerset Trail (Brisbane Forest park D'Aguilar National Park)
22 Nov, 2018
Easy
13km return
3.5 hrs
Nice east stroll with amazing views of the valley below. All up 13 kms and there are heaps of markers along the way so you cannot get lost. Amazing varied plant and tree life. At the moment there are a couple of trees that have fallen and blocked the path but nothing you cant climb over and in between branches to get across.

Some sections are hot and dry but for the most part you are un der cover and the beginning and end sections of this circuit you are in rainforests. The look out is amazing and there are a few smaller lookouts before the actual fenced one (tbh these are actually better). Take care when you are at these as these are sheer cliff faces. All in all easy rating and can easily be done with kids who are willing to walk the 13kms.
Poets Rock (Karawatha Forest)

Did this one.. Very easy and not too interesting to be perfectly honest. As mentioned below good track for a run or cardio of sorts but if you are looking for views or to be impressed with scenery not too much on offer. Please note that roadworks going on around the area near the illaweena street parking so there are a few road closures
Yellowpinch Summit (Mt Barney National Park)

Medium
3km

Nice easy walk. It is uphill for most of the way and gets strenuous towards the end. Amazing views of Mount Barney , Mount Lindesay and Mount Ernest. Best views of Barney for very little effort. Can be done with kids although need to be supervised up top and sheer drop off.

Nice easy walk. Do clockwise so that you do not have to climb up the stairs on the way back. Falls are majestic. Best done after rains.

Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
9 Oct, 2018
Very Hard
7km return
4 hrs
Beautiful mountain.. The hike is hard and its a climb from the get go. The razor back on top can be a bit challenging and it will take about an hour to get across even though the distance is not too much. Only one section involves scrambling and that towards the top i believe its called the chimney. Views from top are breathtaking. If doing in summer carry water, hats sunscreen etc as it is al exposed on top and no shade at all. Do not do if raining or has rained as the razorback section will be very slippery
