Here’s some photos of a recent hike along the Somerset Track, Mount Mee, that I did with my friend and business partner, Mark.
The 5km walk to the lookout covers a variety of terrain including rainforests, hoop pine plantations and open eucalyptus forests.
The views west from the lookout are spectacular, and well worth the hike out.
It’s an ideal spot to sit on the rock and have a bite to eat before walking back.
We crossed a few creeks on the return leg. Some of them were crystal clear.
On the drive home, we had a quick stop on Sellin Road to enjoy some amazing views of the Brisbane CBD off in the distance to the south-east.
13.1km in about 3 hours – this is a moderately difficult walk. Young teens would be able to handle it, but I would take younger kids.
