I did the Yellow Arrow and the Blue Arrow. All up 8.5km and took just over 2.5 hours. Take plenty of water and snacks. The Yellow Arrow was busy but pure bliss on the Blue Arrow. I passed two people right at the end. I walked in a clockwise direction and was glad I did as the creek section in the last 2km was gorgeous! I didn't walk to My Lumley (time constraints) but gives me a reason to go back. I started at 6am which was light enough as it was quite dark in some sections. Pack bug spray if you are attractive to bugs. A top little walk and easy to get to!

I walked this alone. Very easy to follow along a fire trail. I left at 8am, five degrees and returned by about 1.30pm. I allowed an hour rest stop at the top (husband and daughter met me on their mountain bikes!). Track does not have a lot of shade and it got hot quite quickly. Take plenty of water and a shady hat. It's out and back. Lovely view from the lookout.

Short, uphill hike to some amazing views of Mt Barney, Mt Lindsay and beyond. Quite strenuous towards the top but so worth it and being only a short walk, quite accessible for everyone.
