Follow the firetrail down to the right, following the power lines and then turn uphill at the junction of firetrails, turn left uphill and follow this steep trail to the next junction. turn left to the summit about 220m and enjoy the views from Mt Cootha to GDR, Mt barney, Cuningham's Gap to Glasshouse Mountains to Moreton Bay. Return to the junction and turn left and follow this firetrail downhill past the house that was destroyed in the November 2008 storm to an uphill part where the firetrail turns right downhill on bitumen. There are numerous off shoots to explore. Follow the bitumen down to the flats at bottom and if you wish walk back up the street to Mungarie St or follow a rough path over the firetrail way, following the Power lines.

View not fantastic. Manageable walk - don't think it's quite the 8ks stated. Otherwise, very nice :)

A great walk for Brisbane. loved the little trails that offshoot the main track.

Not sure how it was measured at 8Km as we measured only 4.66Km. Couldn't see how the extra was made up - anyway, it's a good workout. Rival to the Kokoda trail on Mt Coot tha for the elevation climb so its an ideal training track.

Entry via Cobalt street in two places also. Turn right into Cobalt St off Mungarie and entrance is after 3rd house on left; other is off where Cobalt St intersects Glengarry Rd. Have yet to see an echidna but plenty of birdlife, bugs, and one snake so far...
