The Pyramid Track

Multiple Locations

Climb to the summit of The Pyramid to see Balancing Rock and magnificent views over the Second Pyramid and Girraween National Park. From the Bald Rock Creek day-use area, cross the creek and weave steadily uphill through eucalypt forests, past rocky outcrops and wetlands to the base of this massive granite dome. A good level of fitness is required to make the climb up The Pyramid as the ascent of the exposed rock face is steep and may be tiring. Take your time to rest and enjoy the views. Warning: the summit has steep cliffs and potentially slippery surfaces. Keep to the track and supervise children closely. There is no walking track to the second Pyramid and considerable rock climbing experience is necessary to scale it.
