You can expect dedicated trails for the entire duration of the walk. Rocks, roots & obstacles are present so a level of agility is required. We are required to go over & under a tree log in one section and a 4m steel rock ladder is used to go up a rock face. There are 4 steep sections the most challenging being on day one as we ascend up to Mt Mistake.
The grading system assesses a walk’s difficulty based on several criteria, including: experience required, steps, gradient, path quality and signage. The Scenic Rim Trail follows Grade 3 – Grade 5 walking trails. Your guides are highly trained with the skills required to lead you on through the variety of terrain.
Grade 3: Suitable for most ages and fitness levels. Some bushwalking experience recommended. Tracks may have short steep hill sections a rough surface and many steps.
Grade 4: Bushwalking experience recommended. Tracks may be long, rough and very steep.
Grade 5: Very experienced bushwalkers with specialised skills, including navigation and emergency first aid. Tracks are likely to be very rough, very steep and unmarked.
