Flinders Peak (Ipswich - Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate)
4 Jul, 2015
Hard
7km return
4 hrs
About a 3 hour round trip. Steady climb all the way, keep to the main ridge. A lot of rock hopping which is fun and great views along the ridge. Yellow markers indicate the way when you get to the large boulder area's. Vegetation is thick with regrowth so take care not to loose trail on way down, stick to ridge. Great views from top. Best local climb closest to the city.
Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney Summit)

Very Hard

8 hour walk. Care must be taken between at 950m (razorback) 1100m to 1250m. Steep drop offs and rock scrambling is required - care must be taken and only for experienced hikers/climbers. Take it slow on incline to be sure not to loose pathway that is not marked. Recommend not descending via this route due to steepness at top of mountain and many loss of trail downhill due to multiple escarpment routes.

The Aussie 10 (New South Wales)

Completed all 10 peaks plus six more over 2100m. One of the best hikes ever. Total distance varies but approx 65km and minimum 2000m ascent and decent. Care should be taken when climbing Mount Townsend and Rams Head Ranges which are boulder peaks. Take time to find right route around the mountain to scale the peak.
Mt Maroon (Mt Barney National Park)

6km return
5 hrs
Clear day and no problems on ascent. The track has new markers on it to indicate directions although they are infrequent but most prominent when directions are needed such as right-hand turn to creek bed off the ridge. Lookout for some small cairns hikers have placed to indicate route to summit and return. Hiking poles would come in handy on steep decent so as to not loose your footing. There is Telstra reception on top of the mountain.
Mount May (Mt Barney National Park)

Hard

Included this hike with Mount Maroon summit climb. Started from Waterfall Road camp site and straight up north ridge which is long and arduous with lots of scree making it difficult to get proper foot holds. Easy ascent to tabletop once you reach bottom of escarpment. Stop for a break here to take in views. Care must be taken with foot and hand holds as you climb to tabletop. You can do three peaks as part of this walk although I chose to do the north peak only. The track has had a bush fire through it and is quite clear of undergrowth but the pathways are not as distinct so care must be taken.
