Course Description

We have laid out a 10km course for those who want to test themselves against the mountain and appear on the leaderboard and results. Its challenging with around 350 metres of climbing.

For those just wanting to explore there are a number of options that start with the Kids Explorer at 500m. The Caracal trail is 1.5km with some climbs and descents, but still relatively gentle. 

At 2km the Woodcutters trail is only slightly longer but a lot steeper. But the real deal lies in exploring your way all the way to the Waterfall and Giants Ridge which involves some steep climbing seen on the FB video.

By exploring the full range of trails and opportunities a maximum of about 20km can be accumulated.
