“beautiful bush walk to the peak”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Great views, privacy and a sense of achievement. After a brief shower the foliage was fresh and vibrant. The historical and geographic signs on the route added further interest

Reviewed 22 August 2013

Fun to hike up from the very bottom, through the neighbourhoods but you can also park close to the top. Great views.
