Although not as big as Mt Barney, climbing Mt Maroon at 965 meters is a challenge in itself, following ridge lines and steep rocky gullies. Our guides will lead you to the top of one of the Scenic Rim’s most picturesque mountains, Mt Maroon.
After lunch and a cuppa, we will head down the mountain via an orchid filled gorge which eventually opens up into one of the most spectacular slabby creek beds with infinity pools and crystal clear water. Finally we will reach Paddy’s Plain and exit to Drynan’s Hut via a fire trail.
This is a circuit hike going up Mt Maroon and down Paddy’s Plain, making it a longer hike (and a car shuffle) than our standard Mt Maroon Hike
You will need a moderate + level of fitness to do this hike. We will hike for approximately 6-8 hours, depending on the pace of the group. Travelling time to and from the location is in addition to this.
We do hope that you can join us for a day of discovery and adventure.
Either this hike or the Stinson Plane Wreck hike is a prerequisite for the Mt Barney Summit Hike expedition in August.
