Serpents Head Rock

  • Grade context: AU


This doesn't have any established routes, it's simply an interesting land mark.

Access issues inherited from Spring Mountain

The forest is Ipswich and Logan council reserve and has free access.

The areas deep in the forest are remote and have limited mobile reception. There is a maze of fire and logging trails throughout the forest and it is very easy to get lost. Always carry a GPS.

If you get hurt, lost or bitten by a snake rescue will be difficult and help will take a long time to arrive.

Similarly to White Rock, a rare plant, the Ruffled Plectranthus (Plectranthus habrophyllus), can be found growing on top of rocks here. Please don't disturb these. Check it out here:


Follow the Dragon's Spine Trail.

Ethic inherited from Spring Mountain

As for any bouldering area - don't chip. As this a new area, lots of cleaning will be required and loose flakes are inevitable - take care!

Please don't climb after heavy rain, the sandstone will be brittle and break.
