We finally climbed to the top, the trail itself is pretty well established, as we were told, where it forks, the right is a bit gentler than the left, but much like Rome, all roads lead to the top. There is a bit that requires hands, so if you're limited, you may want to stop at that point. At the peak is a marker, and views of Alice Springs and the surrounds. Even on a cool day, take water, and maybe a snack for energy. We walk ~10ks daily, and it was still some effort, so if your activity level is more towards the couch potato zone, perhaps just walk the trail from Flynn's Grave t Desert Park or beyond.

This is not for the average walker, or should I say, not the last part of this climb anyway. The walk up this trail is littered with wonderful spots to view the amazing sunsets on offer in Alice Springs. Allow yourself at least 45 minutes from the car park to the top of the climb, particularly if you are setting up for photos. This a something I am really glad I was able to do and would recommend to anyone.

i have done plenty of hiking and this is definitely one of the more challenging things I have done.
Finding the start is not obvious - from the John Flynn monument car park, stay on the same side on the road and go away from Alice Springs. You will quickly see a gate on the left which is the start of the track.
The challenging part is at the end - both up and down - it is a scramble on a vertical rock face and the path is not clear.
I would recommend hiking poles and good boots.
Saw a few discarded water bottles - need a back pack as you can't carry anything when scrambling.
Worth it, but be warned.

This is a fabulous walk with a challenging climb at the end up the rock face to reach the top, and then a further flat 500m to the Trig point where you can enjoy stunning 360 degree views of Alice Springs and surrounds, the East and West MacDonnells, including Mt Sonder

I have done this walk about 6 times. This time I took friends up with my 10yr old & 12yr old. They found it challenging and a little scary at times. The gently incline does cause shortness of breath if you are unfit. The small rocks are quite slippery in parts. My friends actually tumbled on the way down causing her to split her chin open & required it being glued in ED. Just keep in mind so many people take this track regularly and it can be quite dangerous. If you take your time and step carefully it has amazing views from the top. I would not recommend for children under 10yrs if not experienced hikers. Wear sensible walking sneakers or hiking boots.

We started out at about 4PM from the car park and followed the trail through the desert park, eventually getting to the summit at about 5 30, in time for sunset. It is quite tough going, especially as it was still hot at 4 PM, and there is a bit of rock climbing at the end, but the views and the sense of achievement were well worth it.

Mount Gillen is gorgeous scenery and even better to climb. Was a challenging hike up for low endurance but enough places to rest along the way. There would be some incline for a bit and then flatten out long enough for you to catch your breath and continue going. Towards the top of the trail, it gets to a point where you climb up rocks using your arms and your legs to get up. The view of the town, desert, and the other ranges are worth the hike. I highly suggest visiting Mount Gillen and climbing it if you get the chance.

Nice challenging (ish) hike with some rock climbing to keep you interested. Beautiful views from the top. Definitely worth going try to aim around sunrise.

Pick your time of day for this one. We started around 6am to beat the heat and it paid off. The walk is not sign posted, so walk past the front of the John Flynn memorial on the Larapinta Drive side and you will see the entrance gate with signage about a walk. From here, you cross a creek bed and make your way up to the peak, which has a trig station visible from the ground. You need to be reasonably fit, but even children have done the walk without too much trouble. The view from the top is quite good and you get glimpse of Pine Gap too.
