Did the classic: up SE Ridge and down Palm Gorge. Nice views on the way up. Palm Gorge is very pretty. Overall this is a very nice walk.

This is a really nice walk. It's relatively short but decently steep and it certainly gets the heart pumping. We took 3 hours all up including a leisurly morning tea at the summit.

Nice and flat with the promise of a cafe stop at the turnaround point.
Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney Summit)
30 Dec, 2017
Very Hard

This is a fantastic walk. The climb is long and tiring but the route up was easy enough to follow. Following the trail on the descent of South Ridge was a bit more difficult and we had to double check the GPS a couple of times to relocate to the correct trail.

The views from SE Ridge are fantastic. Be prepared for dramatically different weather on different parts of the mountain. We had cold winds, rain and cloud at the top despite being mostly sunny at the bottom, so be sure to take a rain coat and maybe a warm layer.
White Rock Ridge Hike (Ipswich)

Really nice walk. The trail was straightforward and easy to follow. Not really as much climbing as I was expecting. White Rock itself is quite impressive, with some nice views from the top.
Mount Samson (Queensland)

Hard

This walk starts out as a bit of an uphill slog along a fire trail. Thankfully there are some nice views along the way to take your mind off the climb. The trail to the summit is reasonably easy to follow right up until about the last 50 meters or so. Watch for lawyer vines near the top. I think 2 hours might be for one way. As a reasonably fit, solo walker it took me about 3 hours return to Basin Road.
