I thought I’d explore some of the forest up in the hills to the west of Yandina.
There are some awesome trails in those hills, and the forest is beautiful.
Unfortunately it was raining quite heavily and the clouds blocked out any view from the lookout.
One of the hills on Browns Creek Road was heart braking, and actually beat me. It was a continuous rocky and muddy climb in excess of 20% for about 3km. The gradient was fine, but when I stopped, I was unable to clip into the pedals again, and had to walk a couple of hundred metres up the steepest part.
