Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney Summit)
25 Apr, 2019
Very Hard
13km return
9 hrs
Left the car park at 8am, returned at 4pm and followed the service road to the start of the south east ascent.
The walk started off really well, it’s steep and very steep in places.
Navigated across the Razorback with little effort but you do need a head for heights as to the left it drops right off.
Once past this point you come across a variety of challenges so be very aware of your footings. It can be slippy and attempting this in the rain would be treacherous so avoid if possible.
We came up to the first rock slab, not too bad but foot and finger holds are slippy even in dry weather so take care. This is also near to the edge so again nerves of steel needed. This is where the trail (loose term here) goes round to the left of the false summit, again slippy and the edges drop off. Once round you get up top and work your way to another slab. From here it’s a rock climb near edges to the top so be careful.
Got to the top for a well earned rest and then headed down the South ridge side. Not as easy as it sounded and basically just headed down and to the left. We stumbled across a tent site and found markers from there but it was vague until that point.
A longer walk back than expected and tough on the knees so take your time.
just under 18kms for the entire trek and more risky than i would have liked. Not for kids guys





Mount Edwards (Moogerah Peaks National Park)

Medium
6.5km return
3 hrs
Walk across the Dam wall and follow the signs. A steep climb to the top but not a difficult walk. Pace yourself and enjoy the views
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)
22 Apr, 2019
Hard
6km return
5 hrs
A steep hike out of the car park and this flows into lots of rocks after about 1km.
The path is easy enough to follow and there are markers just in case.
Path goes down, which is upsetting as it means it needs to rise again to summit ;(
At the bottom take a quick break as its a decent climb up from here.
You can check out the 1st summit and great views from here (go to the left at the top of the climb).
Now you can choose to go up or end the walk here depending on fitness levels.
I wouldn't recommend for kids but we did see young and old alike on this walk and all were OK
