Hard track
Starting from the Bald Rock Creek Day Use Area on Pyramids Road, Girraween National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of The Pyramid and back via The Pyramid Walk. This relatively short, challenging bushwalk takes walkers to the top of The Pyramid, a spectacular granite formation in the northern section of Girraween National Park. The walk begins with an easy gradient, crossing a concrete bridge over Bald Rock Creek, then climbs steadily through eucalypt forest, past rocky outcrops and grassy flats to the base of The Pyramid. From the base of the massive granite dome, the walk becomes steeper and more challenging, with sections of exposed rock scrambling that can be extremely slippery and dangerous in wet conditions. At the top, walkers will be rewarded with panoramic views over the surrounding landscape and towards the Second Pyramid. On the northern side of the summit, the iconic, precariously balanced boulder known as Balancing Rock can be seen. This walk consists of wide and narrow walking trails, with uneven natural surfaces, rocky surfaces, steep hills and rock scrambling sections, suitable for moderate fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
