Hard track
Starting from the end of Moogerah Connection Road, Moogerah, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Edwards and back, crossing the dam of Lake Moogerah along the way. As you take the final steps and reach the top, expect to be welcomed by rewarding northeasterly views of Mount French in the distance. Fassifern and Aratula are visible from here as well, and you can even see the Brisbane skyline on a clear day. The wide, shaded track up the slope is short, but gives you and your legs quite a challenge as it is unrelentingly steep. On the way up, keep an eye out for wallabies and lizards. The scenic dam wall can make for a great picnic spot after the hefty hike. Look out for turtles in the water as you savor the views over Lake Moogerah and Reynolds Creek. Keep in mind that there may be snakes along the track. Be extra cautious around the cliffs as they are not fenced. Take lots of water and avoid hot days to have a better hiking experience. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
