We took off at sunrise from trinity beach for Earl Hill. The entrance to the path is easy to find (as very well described in the review of maxims1). You can even find it in google maps as Earl Hill Summit Track. The track is...More

Be advised it is a 1km steep and nearly straight up on a goat type track. When you finally get to the top you dont get the view you were expecting as the trees are in the way. Wear good shoes and take water

Earl Hill is a great hill to climb with sensational views at the top of Yorkey Knob and the coastline. It is well worth the physical effort but some degree of fittness is required.

Tough walk up the hill but well worth it with the view at the top overlooking trinity beach and then also looking at yorkeys knob.

Plenty of steps to get your legs burning. Watch the slippery tree roots in the way down. Great exercise for kids too

I am 60 and I have been overtaken by people older than me, but I consider myself to be quite fit - so they must be very fit! I usually have to rest for breath 3 or 4 times on the way up. I think...More

Great short walk, yes its steep, no you don't need to be fit. However, it is definitely not for people who have difficulty walking up stairs or steep inclines. View from the top is great, agree a bit of trimming would helpful.

This track is quite deceiving. For the fit there is probably no challenge but for the not so fit, take your time. The track does not seem to be maintained. Maybe this will change now that the government have bought it.

Great track and gets the blood flowing. Quite steep so be ready! Trees at top could be clipped back to enable a better view. Yewww
