Lots of trails to chose from, but many of them are very rough, and some are very steep while others are closed during nesting seasons. So check before you go.

Just one of many walking trails which was very enjoyable amongst a rain forest, not too steep. Very interesting but some spooky spiders were amongst some of the trees/bushes. Well out of reach though.

This trip we did two walks - one along the base of Mt Gow to Little Island (3k, flat) and the other up from Neds Beach to Malabar (2k steep, loose underfoot). Both had fabulous views.

Did most of the walking tracks when we stayed on Lord Howe Island. We found them to be well signposted and easy to follow. An added bonus was the cycle stands at the beginning of the tracks. Well done to those who maintain the walks.

One of the many beautiful things about Lord Howe is its size. You can walk everywhere, or cycle to the track head, without the worry of being run over by a car. You can work your way around the Island without too much stress. Regret...More

You can climb Mt Lidgbird without a guide but the track only goes to the Goat house cave. This is at about 410m up the mountain. There are no tracks past the cave. You cannot climb to the sumit. The only climb where you... More

Boots would be best but unless climbing Gower or the Goat House. Sneakers would be fine.

We've ever had any issue with leeches in our many visits to LHI.
