Starting from Rifle Range Road, Atherton, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Baldy and back via the Grays Break and Mount Baldy Walking tracks, crossing Thompson Creek along the way. Prepare to be rewarded by the panoramic views over the town of Atherton and beyond. Lake Tinaroo and the Danbulla State Forest look especially picturesque from the top. Explore the rainforest and eucalypt woodland as you make your way to the top, and don’t forget to stop and sit on the stone steps to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Watching the sunset from the summit is magical as you can imagine, but the night sky and city lights can be peculiarly interesting as well. Keep in mind that there may be loose rocks on the track. Avoid coming during/after rainfall as the track can be slippery when wet. 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.
