Mount Maroon

A great scramble to the top
6km  Allow 5 hours return

Located in Mount Barney National Park Queensland in the Scenic Rim region.

Check out what the hike is like here.


This hike is challenging on the heart on the way up and the legs on the way down.  The trail up can be broken into three sections. First section is up with some rocky unstable ground, it then moves into more of a scramble in the section section. Once you are through the scramble it is a hike up large rocks to the top. Check out what the hike is like here. Parks map here.
