(0 km) Start of Bembooka Rd to Warriwarri Lookout
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 718 m Time = 17 mins
Climb = 123 m Descent = -3 m
From opposite number 2 Bembooka Rd, Green Point (just downhill from the roundabout), this walk leaves the road and follows the track into the bush, with a fence on the right. The track soon leaves the fence (and ignores a track to the right) and heads up the hill. The track follows the ridge, getting steeper as it gets higher. As the track nears the rocks, it zigzags a little, working its way up, then a short distance later comes to a clearing, bench seat and the signposted 'Warriwarri Lookout' sign[1].

Warriwarri Lookout Alt = 160 m
Warriwarri Lookout is an overgrown and signposted[2] lookout in the middle of Kincumber Mountain Reserve. There is a fairly large clearing and a bench seat[3]. There are slightly better views north, past the sign at the unfenced rock outcrop. The filtered views look north-east. The view from the lookout is overgrown, so do not expect much in the way of views.

(0.72 km) Warriwarri Lookout to Int of Sid Pulsford Walking and Warriwarri Lookout trails
Walk: Easy - servicetrail
Length = 287 m Time = 5 mins
Climb = 19 m Descent = -1 m
Veer right: From the lookout, this walk heads away from the 'Warriwarri Lookout' sign[4] up the small rise, past the bench seat and along the wide sandy trail. Following the now flat, sandy trail though the bush, the walk passes an informal track (on the left) and comes to a three-way intersection and a 'Warriwarri Lookout' sign[5] pointing back along the trail.

(1.01 km) Int of Sid Pulsford Walking and Warriwarri Lookout trails to Northern end of picnic area
Walk: Easy - servicetrail
Length = 294 m Time = 5 mins
Climb = 4 m Descent = -5 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk heads south, away from the face of the two signs[6] (following neither arrow). The walk passes a large angophora and comes to an intersection with a link track (on the left).
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the wide trail south, gently uphill, keeping the wide valley on the right. The walk follows the sandy trail as it gently winds through the wooded forest and soon heads around a locked gate, coming to a large 'Sid Pulsford Walking Trail' sign[7] at the northern end of the large grassy picnic area.

(1.3 km) Northern end of picnic area to Mudbrick building car park
Walk: Easy - bushtrack
Length = 184 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 1 m Descent = -4 m
Continue straight: From here, this walk heads directly across the picnic area to the buildings on the far side. After passing the toilet block, the walk follows the path around the mud brick building to a small car park on the other side.

Honeman's Rock picnic area Alt = 171 m
Honeman's Rock picnic area is a large picnic area at the top end of Island View Drive. This picnic area has a couple of large grassy areas[8], composting toilets[9], free electric BBQs[10], picnic tables[11], shelters, garbage bins[12], drinking water[13] and information signs[14]. The picnic area is home to a mud brick building[15] (available for hire) and Honeman's Rock[16], from which the area derives its name. There is a fair amount of parking available next the picnic area, and some extra spaces a few hundred meters down the road.

Mud Brick Building Alt = 170 m
The mud brick building is a landmark in the main picnic area at Kincumber Mountain, and is a popular spot to gather. Also known as 'Kincumber Mountain Information Centre', 'The Kiosk', 'Kincumber Kiosk' and 'Kincumber Mountain Kiosk', the building was constructed in 1986 with funding from Community Employment Programme[17]. The building is generally locked but can be booked through the local Lions Club[18] for special events. The building has a rain water tank, small kitchen and one main large room. The verandah also provides good shelter.

Honeman's Rock Alt = 163 m
Honeman's Rock (aka Honeyman's Rock) is a large rock outcrop in front of the mud brick building, in the Honeman's Rock Picnic area. The exposed section of rock is 60m long and about 30m wide, with the western side having a significant unfenced drop. The rock is named after Cecil Lyle Honeman who became a lease holder on the mountain in 1962[19]. The rock has a large depression that once filled with water, and a drain has been dug to keep the pool empty and clear of rubbish.
