An excellent walk to do in a day in you have a 4WD allowing you to park at the top of Cleared Ridge. If not its an easy 2 day walk camping at Yamahra creek. If not starting from Cleared Ridge the walk begins from Waterfall Creek Reserve Camping Area which is reached by driving to the end of the 2WD section of waterfall creek rd. Follow the 4WD track all the way up to Cleared Ridge where you turn left at an information hut, walk through a gate and follow a grassy ridge line for a km or so. Soon you arrive at a signed junction where you turn right and head steeply downhill to a creek crossing. If you cross here you will be heading towards Montserrat Lookout. We chose to follow the Yamahra Creek downstream to the Yamahra Creek Campsite (where we stayed for the night) and Upper Portals. There is a trail that runs along the top of the ridge to the north Barney Creek which leads to Upper Portals. In my opinion though it is nicer to ditch your shoes and rockhop down the creek till you reach the portals. Sadly I didn't take any photos of them but they are quite spectacular.

The next day we walked down to the junction of Yamahra and Barney Creek where the trail crosses over Yamahra at the junction and follows a ridge steeply uphill to Montserrat Lookout. Some of the best views of the Barney Massif are available from this point so arrange a lunch stop or a decent break for when you get to the top. To find the track down, head north over the slabby rocks on the summit till you find a footpad. Follow this all the way down to the base where you will see a clearing and a house on your left. From here turn right and follow and overgrown track which soon joins up with a less overgrown track and continues till you reach the point you started following Yamahra Creek on the first day. Head back up the hill from here to retrace your steps to your vehicle/s.

A Note: Some of the land upstream of Yamahra Creek is grazed so the water definately requires treatment if you intend to drink it (probably more than just boiling as well, if you have a filter, bring it).
