Awesome hike but rather a long one. Some great views along the way. Nothing to strenuous just tiring over the last 2 klms. Worth the extra 1.2 klms to view the Ballanjui falls absolutely beautiful.

Hard slog up from car park to the first ridge. Was quite muddy from the recent rains. Traversing the first ridge was not to difficult would have been easy as back when I was 30. Fantastic 360 degree views of the Advancetown Dam and Numinbah valley and Egg rock. Bit of a climb down to the base of pages pinnacle and then a scramble up and across another ridge to the top. Reasonably easy return trip staying below in the rainforest. Lovely day.

Nice flat walk. Loads of kangaroos. We saw 1 koala and we had a encounter with a rather large Red Belly Black snake which Sandra nearly stepped on. We had a bit of rain and a lot of the tracks were under water.

Well marked track. But a GPS was good for the confidence. First half of the track was reasonably easy. Second half was all uphill and steep and slippery. Good day all in all. Long day all told including the drive there. Would definitely recommend a 4WD.
