"Parked of Sir Bertram Stevens Drive a couple hundred metres north of Mt Leighton-Bailey. Due to relatively high speeds on the roadway (80km/h) we decided to enter the bush from the car and bush-bash our way south. The bush was just too thick especially for my four year old. The density of the bush was too thick to successfully summit this mountain. Next attempt we'll try from the south which looked a little less dense. While Mt Leighton-Bailey is only 142m west of Sir Bertram Stevens Drive, the vegetation is quite thick and the entry point considerably dangerous, being in a high speed zone and" - Mount Leighton-Bailey, Julian4077, Sep 2, 2018
"Short trip up Sarahs Knob. Parked on Woronora Dam Road at the entrance to the Pipeline Trail. Hiked along the Pipeline Trail for about 10 minutes to the intersection of Sarahs Knob Trail. Sarahs Knob Trail heads off to the east. On the western side of Pipeline Trail at this intersection is a picnic table. Walk past the picnic table and scramble up the hill to the summit of Sarah's Knob. Here you get a great view out across Woronora Dam. " - Sarahs Knob, Julian4077, Aug 7, 2018
"Led 11 members of Meetup group Happy Hikers up Mt Clunie. Total time was about 4.5 hours and we took our time. Started from Boonah Border Gate and followed the rabbit fence out and back. Very steep climb to the summit." - Mount Clunie, donizen, Jul 8, 2018
"Family trip up Mt Kembla using the Mt Kembla Summit Track from Cordeaux Rd. Improvements made since my last trip with chains around lookouts and certain sections of the rocks, even a step ladder put in near the top plateau. Track still very well worn through regular use. Slow going due to kids but fun anyway. " - Mount Kembla, Julian4077, Mar 31, 2018
"Mt Westmacott is accessible from the Mt Westmacott Walking Track we accessed from a fire trail/service trail name 108 Management Trail. The track is marked with white paint on a rock and dotted with white paint dots through the bush to the summit. The track is about 15 minutes from the 108 Management Trail. The track is not well maintained but usable. The last few metres require some scrambling up rocks. Easily achievable even for my companion, my seven year son.
