Bicton Hill Circuit Track is a 4km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Clump Mountain National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

The track begins on Bicton Hill’s exposed eastern side, where sturdy trees such as brush box and swamp mahogany grow. Climbing steadily, the track circles around to the hill’s sheltered western side, which supports one of Australia’s few remaining examples of lowland rainforest. The circuit leads to a lookout at the summit then loops back around to join the original track to return to the car park. Cyclone Yasi damaged much of the canopy along the track, there is little shade along the way. Carry water, wear hats and sunscreen and avoid walking the in the midday heat.
