I've never been to the Sunshine Coast before and this beginner friendly hike looks like a good way to snag a view or two.

The plan right now is to cross to Gibsons by taking the 9:20 ferry from Horseshoe Bay. This means catching the 257 at 8am Georgia and Seymour, I'll be there by 7:40. It is 15.25 for the return voyage from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale. Information on trailpeak says the hike is about 6 hours, this means there is the possibility to catch the 4:30 back to Horseshoe Bay or the 6:30 (if folks want to grab a beer or two at Persephone).

This will be an easy day hike with steady elevation gain, here is the recommended gear list for a summer day trip, and this trip will be a great warm up for many more to come.

There will not be a pretrip but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!

Lastly, if anyone is interested and is content with extra weight, we can do some sort of food exchange at the top for lunch. Nothing too formal, but if there is something you really like and want the rest of the world to try, then please bring it!
