Walk is accessed from a 4 wheel drive track along Lords Road. Car parking area is identified by a small open area with signs indicating no vehicle access. Follow the 4 wheel drive track that continues on the left. The track follows the ridge down into a creek and then up a small pitch and down into a second creek crossing. Be aware there is a small gully that sometimes contains water. This is not the entry point. When you cross the second creek, the entry to the track is 15 -20 metres from the creek to the right. There is a sign identifying the start of the ascent, however, it is overgrown with lantana. To avoid missing the track, after the crossing the entry is indicated by an indistinct track. The track takes a path straight up towards the rock face. The first part of the track is overgrown and leads up towards a rocky gully. Walkers should look for tape; however, there is a logical path. Care should be taken as parts of the ascent is rocky. The track continues vertically until the start of the rock face. From the top of the track the track traverses along the left of the rock face. This part of the track involves scrambling and climbing. and continues around to the back of the rock. The last 20-30 metres to the summit is across open rock faces. Care needs to be taken if wet.

Easy walk to the rock pool area. Starts in dry rainforest and parallels the gully. There are a series of granite rock pools with cascading water. Care needs to be taken on the rocks.
Mt Walsh (Mount Walsh National Park)

Started the walk early in the morning around 7.30 am. Low gradient to start increasing steeply from the base. Track clearly marked with tape. Care needs to be taken on the ascent due to loose rocks and slippery rock faces. Two small climbs up crevices, ropes have been attached. I suggest you carefully check the condition of the ropes before using them. The top of the mountain is open. Walkers need good non slip footwear and plenty of water. This is a great walk for experienced bushwalkers
