Pleasant reasonably easy walk if completed in the recommended clockwise direction. Currently the entry & car park from Forestry Rd is closed (revamp of the area possibly) however entry from Carricks Rd offers parking & is easy to find.
The circuit plus the extra to Warringa Pool is around 8 klms at an easy stroll taking a little over 2 hours.
Goannas, wallabies & large skinks plus an array of birds were seen along the way.

Nice walk on a clear path through some lovely forest. The scrabble up the chain at the end has foot grooves so not too bad but a pair of gloves is handy coming down.
The 5.5 hours is a good estimate for someone of age with reasonable fitness. Younger & more fit should finish quicker.
Spectacular views from the Border Ranges to the ocean.

Great walk, pity about smoke haze today . Need a reasonable level of fitness & some agility to scale through the few rock crevices.
A 60 & 67 year old, in company of adult son achieved it in 4.5 hours taking our time. Busy at the weekends, fewer people week days.

Stunning views from the summit & the walk is full of birds, including the lovely sounds of the bell birds. Easy well defined track with a few sections of steps but nothing too difficult. Saw 1 snake that moved too quickly into the undergrowth for positive ID but think it was a rough scale. The stinging nettle is mostly off the path but is certainly there in large patches. Favourite walk of southeast qld so far.

Lovely walk with spectacular views of mountain lakes & the surrounding region over to both Bruny Island & Federation Peak.
Had a clear windless day to enjoy the walk that is a bit difficult in the middle section climbing the first of the inclines. The track is clear marked with orange triangle markers except for the last scrabble up to the very top. Look for cairns built by previous walkers & try to walk towards them as it is the best track. There is a registration book in the info building & I suggest filling it out as weather here can change quickly. Couple of 60+ year olds completed in 4 hours taking in the side tracks to the lakes.
