Length: 1.8 mi • Est. 1 h 5 m
Great for those who want to build up to the more challenging mountains. Can be challenging. The path can be slippery and a little muddy just after rain and there are a few steep sections. Amazing views at the top but take care near the edges and keep watch of children.Show more

Length: 1.4 mi • Est. 1 h 12 m
This track is short but extremely steep and not for those who are afraid of heights. It begins with stairs and then vertical rock face (the steepest section) and then another roughly 20 minutes of rock climbing and scrambling before you reach the top. Ideally climbed in cooler months as the Queensland heat can be unforgiving. Look out for snakes in warmer months too.Show more

Very nice with a great view. Several climbs, but a pleasant run. Need to keep an eye on your feet, as the path is a little uneven and slippery in parts.Show more

moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(89)
Length: 1.5 mi • Est. 1 h 4 m
A beautiful place with varying views and landscapes. A place to see and explore, feel the serenity of the bush in dry times. The long first climb up is a good little workout then a short slow steady scramble descent. The same up to the second peak, then an easy hike along the spur and back down. Nothing too challenging - dusty rock surfaces on the descent probably the main thing to look out for.Show more

Length: 0.9 mi • Est. 42 m
A paved but very steep walk leads 700 metres uphill through a small area of rainforest, then winds up through eucalyptus woodland to a fire tower. There is a 360 degree view of the Glass House Mountains and other parts of South East Queensland from the summit. On a clear day, Brisbane CBD is visible too. when decending the fire tower, go down backwards as you would with any ladder, several people have tried to go down forward and had very nasty accidents.Show more

At only 120m this is an easy climb to top of one of the two most southerly of the Glass House Mountains. The terrain is mostly rocks with grass or dense bush, but has a surprisingly good 360° view from the top.Show more

A pleasant shared-use trail following the Old Wamuran rail trail through mixed eucalypt bushland and rainforest with a dense understory and small creeks. Variations to this trail can be taken utilising the network of trails inside the Glass House Mountains National Park, to return as a loop rather than out-and-back.Show more
