Burchell Trail

13 km a Grade 3 day walk to old mill starting and finishing at Fridays Campground - confirmed with park ranger Sept 9

 

This is an eminently suitable walk all who are wildflower and wildlife enthusiasts. The Burchell Trail is a 35km, grade 3 one way hike located in Brisbane Ranges National Park with very modest gradients. Its a great way to see the park in glorious spring as it traverses the length of the park from south to north. However we will just complete the first stage.
