Bally Mountain (Gold Coast)

Its a pretty walk however the guidance from qld government is The trail to the summit of Bally Mountain is an informal out of service fire trail and is not part of our promoted trail network. It is currently closed. We are currently exploring the possibility of formalising this as a recreational trail. To ensure all elements of the walk are safe, we must conduct a risk assessment. During this process the trail will be closed and signage will be in place. We have made this assessment a priority.

Mt Cougal (Springbrook National Park)

Fantastic walk - i started at the cougal cascades and walked over the hill (walk around the fence near the path to the cascades)- adds some distance however only way I could find from QLD. The walk is easy to find all the way until you reach the final scramble - look for pink ribbons on the scramble. Pretty much just follow the border fence. I did not see one other person on the walk. The final scramble is a good climb so may be tough for little kids
