Hiking Border Ranges to Lamington NP

Postby brettfred7 » Fri 22 Sep, 2017 11:43 am

Just wondering if anyone has hiked from Border Ranges NP to Lamington NP or vice versa ... I understand the trail leads off the Brindle Creek track and join with the actual border fence soon after, which eventually returns to the Border Track.

Every now & then a bushwalking club will have a exploratory walk out to Cockscombs Point, which is supposed to have great views.....but apart from that I'm guessing those that have traversed the route would be few & far between.
Mountains view are good for my soul...& getting to them is good for my waistline !

I did this section about 25 years ago and there was a very faint foodpad. Even when bushwalking club did go there it really slow going, thick rain forest and not many views. That section may not be too hard to navigate because you keep the escarpment on one side of you. The border is hard to navigate and is a compass March, I have been misplace in their a few times. Good luck , I will follow this post.
