This link will give you most of the info you'll going to need if your going to explore the area,
just south of Ipswich, suitable for bushwalkers, mountain bikes & horses......http://www.ipswich.qld.gov.au/documents ... _guide.pdf
To get the most out of this area, your going to have go leave the track & climb a ridge or two,
MT Goolman, Mt Blaine or Flinders Peak summits are there for the taking & provide great views.
There's 3 or 4 smaller peaks to tackle nearby too.
Its a very dry area, so take plenty of fluids, there's a couple of small dams spaced out along the trail
for watering horses, so you can try your filtering system in there if your really desparate.
No ticks while I was there....that's always a good thing.
The track on the brochure doesn't actually go to Mt Blaine.....just to a seat with a view Flinders Peak on its saddle.
If you want to summit you'll have to locate the sometimes overgrown unmarked track, just off the fenceline.
There's a geocache on the summit with bits & pieces & a log book if your into that sort of thing.
