Mt Cougal (Springbrook National Park)

Starting at cougal casade look left and go towards the Sliver gate which leads you to a firetrail (1.4km) turn left for another 500m and you will reach the start of Mount Cougal track, from there stick the fence line, head up the trail for approx 3.5km or until the fence line ends, veer right and continue on the warn footpad, from there you will see a vertical cliff face (that's not the way up, I found out later on the descent) look to your right&up (NE if your facing the cliff face) and around the corner is the easier way up, the summit is just on the left of that final climb, from there I headed to the west peak which was fairly easy to follow just stick the worn footpad and look for some pink ribbons, sadly there was nothing to see at the West peak as there was no views. Re-trace your steps back to the east peak, I decided to head back to cougal casade via Boyde Butt and as I got to the descent there were quit a lot of fallen trees blocking the trail path making it very dangerous, a lot of the marked ribbons were also noted on the fallen tree, so with no navigational aid (forgot my phone at home) I decided it was to risky and headed back up and went back down the tourist route to my car. Overall a fun 5 hours and 15km hike, I recommend the east peak only as the west will truly disappoint.
