Steep Hike, Rewarding View

The hike trail is most paved and so it's easy to find your way. However, it's really steep so you'd need to take your time or be really physically fit. All in all, it was super... read more

The hike trail is most paved and so it's easy to find your way. However, it's really steep so you'd need to take your time or be really physically fit. All in all, it was super fun to do as a group and the view at the top was so worth it!

The steep road which you can drive up in a 4x4 is not the best hike up the mountain, but you can reach the start by minibus (to/from Old Road). It took me 45 minutes to the top. It was a hot, early afternoon. I was alone. You have to walk a mile or so before the road starts to... More

Hiked to the top with the Sugar Ridge excursion. Worth the view, but it is a STEEP climb! I was as amazed to see the concrete drive going straight up as I was to see the view at the top.

Be careful driving up Mount Obama. Some of the path is paved, some is dirt, and the incline can be severe at a few points. It is a one lane drive. At the top, there is a locked gate and a communications tower, so you cannot technically stand on 'top' of the mountain. But you can walk around the fenced... More

My wife and I walked up from the sign that says only 4 wheel drive vehicles beyond this point. If you walk alongside the fence at the top you will come out on a rocky area from which there are fabulous views. In my wife's words "It's a stunning part of the world." Definitely worth the climb.

We drove up in a hired RAV4 which is kind of a 4x4 and we struggled at several points due to the steepness of the road and the lack of power from the car. Upon reaching the top I noticed the front tyres virtually had no tread left but thankfully it was dry. Going down was seat belts off and... More

Firstly, you don't need a guide to go up this peak as there is a paved road all the way up to the top. Second, do not drive up this paved road unless you have a decent 4X4. I hiked up this peak and honestly would not recommend anyone going up via motor vehicle. There are prolonged distances of steepness... More

Firstly, a word of warning. If your guide book suggests a trip up Boggy Peak (or Mount Obama as it is somewhat sycophantically been re-named) and doesn't mention that a 4x4 is absolutely required then throw your guide book in the bin. The road is very steep and badly maintained in many places, to the extent that getting a normal... More

Don't get discouraged when you get to the top and see the do not enter sign. Get out and hike a few extra steps. Not recommended unles you are familiar with off road driving as road is very steep in parts and there is nowhere to turn around safely.
