Overall rating
  • To be honest the combination of this post and details as well a map off avenza maps really helped. Alot of the trails at the top super over grown also. Thanks for the info guys!

  • We attempted this walk over the weekend and completely lost the track just as we were leaving the rainforest and heading into the alpine ash forest. We crossed an overgrown cleared area (filled with stinging nettles!) but could not find the track heading out the other side of the clearing. We decided against bush bashing our way up to the ridge line, and decided instead to return back to the rainforest gallery, and enjoyed the wonderful forest just as much on the way down as the way up.
    We then drove to the summit and walked out towards Mt Boobyalla and saw the beginning of the track down, but didn’t have time or energy to pursue it downhill and see if we could join up with where we had got to.
    It would be great for someone who knows the track to put some more route tags up, or
    I suggest anyone doing the walk needs to have better directions of how to repick up the track than we did after the clearing.

    Sounds like you had an adventure. The section of the track that you mentioned has been closed for some time (as noted in the hike description). Unfortunately bush bashing, map and compass and the GPX files would be required.

  • Completed 30/1/2021.
    Start of path difficult to find description helped but took some effort. Well marked early missed a turn and spent around an hour and a half finding old tags looks like the old tramline as was flat and had some old bolts ect. Wised up doubled back and found path. Plenty of markers and tags lots of fallen trees… alot of rain yesterday so found the trail was part of the creek bed at times. Top is still over grown occasional tag but I just went for it following an old map. Plenty of leaches and cuts. Was a lovely walk such a shame its been shut.

    When I was updating the walks section, I re-walked the route in May 2016 and Janet is right, the top section of the Cement Creek route is overgrown with ferns and navigation was a bit tricky. However some people have cut back the trees and shrubs on the bottom section of the track and marked the route with flagging tape where it isn’t obvious. Hopefully they will return to slash and mark the top part this summer, as it’s a great walk and it would be a shame if it reverted to jungle.

  • Impossible to find Cement Creek – it was marked very clearly on my GPS, I went into the vegetation and looked for it for a while. We switched gear drove a little further and started by Mounty Victoria on to Mount Boobyala via Mount Donna Buang. Very nice. At some point we were meant to cross again cement creek trail and again impossible to spot in the overgrowth.
