My partner and I did this climb and had fun but...we definitely took a few wrong turns. I wouldn't recommend doing it by yourself just in case you got to a part that was too steep to go down. In terms of the climb itself,...More

A steep but very rewarding hike up Mt Jim Crow. Some climbing and scrambling on all fours required so suitable only for fit people. We are in our mid 60’s and quite fit and managed it without any problems. Great view from the top.

A short walk with a fantastic view after a bit of climbing. Just calculate 2-3 hours of your time and it will be worth it

This strts of easy but if you get to a point that its a struggle give up and go back. The farther you climb the tougher it gets I rate it moderate. But stick to the well worn track. It is common for those who...More

Enjoy hiking up Mt Jim Crow for a fantastic 360 degree view overlooking Mulara, Ironpot, Limestone Creek & Barmoya. Parents please note, the track is not for young kids. There are steep sections in the track that requires good balance and strength. There are no...More
