In 2022, due to changes required by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, the circuits for the Bendigo Bank Mountain Challenge (Mountain circuit and Prince and Princess circuit) were required to be altered. The trail between the base of the mountain and where the metal stairs begin is now closed. This decision was made to protect the mountain due to severe erosion that was happening to that part of the track.

The new Bendigo Bank Mountain Challenge - Prince and Princess circuit, is 2.8 km long and has 100+ m of vert.

The Prince and Princess circuit is now incorporated into the Bendigo Bank Mountain Challenge. Prince and Princess runners will start 3 minutes after runners competing in the Mountain circuit have departed. Prince and Princess runners will run past the Lions Den and out to the base of the mountain where they will turn left and do a small loop before joining back onto the main track back to the finish line. The total course distance is 2.8km with 100m of vertical gain. The course is designed for 9-13 year olds (competitors race as per their age on the day) as a lead up race for children interested in one day competing in the Bendigo Bank Mountain Challenge - Mountain circuit.
