Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)
24 Jan, 2021
6km return
5 hrs
First half of the walk is a bit of a slog, however it becomes quite enjoyable after that, with probably the best views at the top of a climb I have experienced yet. Took 1hr 10 to the top and 1 hr coming back down, consumed just under 2L of water. Would recommend at least 3 litres of water (possibly more) if starting much after 7am. Watch your footing on the descent, especially on the loose gravel sections.

Regarding getting to the climb, I managed the gravel track in a MX5 (only a mildly stressful experience), so I imagine most other 2WD's will have no issues.
Spring Mountain (White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estate)

Enjoyable hike with nice views at the summit. Would definitely recommend trail runners over standard running shoes given the sections with loose rock, however if you take it slow you should be fine. Having the GPX track on your phone as others have pointed out is a big help. Round trip was 2:30 with about 15 minutes spent at the summit.
