Hike Summary

Steep, narrow path. Early sections are relatively easy-going, but track becomes narrower and more difficult as you climb. May be some branches on track to be stepped over. There is a self composting toilet, conveniently located right near the entrance of the car park.

One thought on “Mount Bishop Lilly Pilly Gully (9.6km)

  1. The trail was good and well marked. There were a few spots around the board walk off Lilly Pilly Track that were slippery with moss and couple places where the chicken wire across the board had lifted, creating a tipping hazard. Something to be aware of especially if kids are running ahead of you. However that part of the walk is stunning, a large variety of fungi can be found, so taking it slow and having a good look is very rewarding.
