Summer Falls are one of the highlights of the Great Connondale Walk in the hills 20km west of Kenilworth. If you have ever been to the falls you will look down from the top and wonder how to get to the base of the falls. To get to the bottom is a real fun adventure and definately worth the effort. We started by descending down a ridge about 1km north along Sunday Creek from from the Great Walk crossing. The ridge goes down into a creek bed then you climb back out, joining the Great Walk trail for 40m and then take the next ridge to the west over to the gorge. Near the end of the ridge you look down to the left into Summer Creek Gorge and across to the falls tummbling down to the base. From here its a slippery descent down into the gorge. Our trail involves a 40m swim upstream then a short, 50m walk to the bottom of the falls where you will find two nice swimming holes. Be careful as the hike involves lots of rock scrambling and there isnt a phone signal in this area. For more information, visit our hiking Facebook Page- "Take A Hike- SE Qld".
