Mount Samson (Queensland)
8 Mar, 2016
Hard
7.6km return
4.5 hrs
Pushed further along the ridge to the north west to the top of a second knoll before dropping down into a gully and following a creek down which swung south east before meeting with another creek that flows south. It took me 2hrs to reach this point due to extremely thick undergrowth with lots of patches of Lantana along the ridgeline and very steep descent down to the creek. No views to be had but a nice sheltered valley of palms to be discovered which was the domain of 3 wild pigs.

Might try and push a bit further along the range next time.
Mt Warning Summit trail (Mt Warning National Park)

Hard

Up for sunrise again. Quite an unusual bushwalk in that a lot of people choose to walk this in the early hours of the morning to reach the summit for sunrise. Standing room only at the summit this morning. Who knew it would be this popular on the 10th January?
Mount Tibrogargan Summit (Glass House Mountains)

Very Hard

Nice to see this walk open again. I took my son for his 15th birthday and his first ascent of this mountain. Unfortunately he tripped over after all the hard stuff on his way down and twisted his ankle. I had to carry him out on my back!

Spent a couple of days camping and fishing along the beach. Great spot to get away from it all with no mobile coverage

This time I did this walk from the eastern end of Teerwah Beach. Both approaches are very scenic.

Easy walk, but worth it for the views.
Mt Beerwah East Face (Glass House Mountains)

Very Hard
3km return

After a thunderstorm in the early hours of the morning this track up the east face was more of a river than a track with lots of water coming down.
Hells Gates (Sunshine Coast)

Took our French exchange student on this walk. Saw whales, dolphins, an echidna, blue tongue lizard and a koala.

Nice little calf burner, particularly one week after the Gold Coast Marathon!
