Overall rating
  • I second the GPX map recommendation. I got lost a few times and without GPX, I could have gotten totally lost.
    There are also treacherously steep parts both uphill and downhill in the second half of the track (if walking clockwise)
    The second half is open to off-road vehicles and those heavy vehicle uses probably took a toll on those sloped paths.

    It’s so steep that having a hiking pole is a must if you dont want to fall over in those parts, especially if the ground is wet & muddy.
    I had to go through a barely trodden sidewalk for one of those passages that were too steep.

    I believe this trail should be rated grade 4 for that reason. First half can be fairly relaxing but the second half put me in survival mode. And I’m a pretty fit person.

  • Hiked this trail on the weekend. *My biggest tip: don’t attempt this without the GPX map, we would have gotten lost countless time without it! We walked the trail anti-clockwise, starting at the Last Creek Track gate. The first hour is spent navigating steep motorbike tracks that got slippery after rain during the week – so walking poles would have been helpful. After that it’s mostly following a wide track with plenty of steady inclines to the get the heart pumping. Overall a nice walk surrounded by beautiful bushland. We completed it in 3.5hours.
