MAKE A BOOKING

Join Leonie hiking Morialta to Norton Summit, approximately 14km return. This hike is rated as difficult 9/10  as it has some very steep inclines and declines.

Please meet in the car park, near the toilet block, this is situated at the end of the road you drive in on.  Meeting time is at 9.45am for 10am start.

Enter the park from the corner of Morialta and Stradbroke Roads, Woodforde (see  map

As a group we will slowly make your way along the Centre track before starting to make our way up the steep incline to the top of the hills. Along the way you will be able to enjoy some fabulous views of the waterfalls.
Once at the top, that’s the hardest part of the hike over with and we can enjoy the rest of the hike through the undulating hills to Norton Summit. 

Once we reach Norton Summit, we will take a break at The Scenic Hotel and perhaps enjoy a well earned slice of cake or muffin and tea/coffee (at own expense) 

After our break you can either get a lift back to Morialta falls car park (please pre-arrange) or alternatively complete the whole hike and return the same way we came up.

I enjoyed all parts of the Cape to Cape. The accomodation was basic but a lot better than camping out. The combination of Sue Hile & Emily & Simon was special. Thanks for the amazing walk.
