At Nerang Viewpoint, the ground drops away to the north, giving views across to the neighboring forested ridges. This is a short and quiet walk and feels 'off the beaten track'. Initially this walk follows a wide trail, but this soon changes to a foot track following a broad ridge north through scribbly gums and wild flowers. The track has some small uphill and downhill sections and is eroded in places. (open in app)
