Starting from Rifle Range Road, Atherton, this circuit walk takes you to the summits of Mount Baldy and Yabi Mountain, exploring the dense rainforest along with the open woodland of Herberton Range State Forest. Both summits provide you panoramic views over the surrounding land, especially towards the town of Atherton and Lake Tinaroo in the distance. Notice the change in vegetation as you travel through the different sections of the track. You’ll come across lots of bird species such as cockatoos and house sparrows throughout the journey. Gliders and possums reside in the area as well. In fact, the word ‘Yabi’ actually means possum in the aboriginal language of the Tableland Yidinji People. Please take good care of their country out of respect. Keep in mind that there may be loose rocks on the track. Avoid coming during/after rainfall as the track can be slippery when wet. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
