Trachyte circuit (Mt Tibrogargan)

 (Sunshine Coast)

This circuit leads through open woodland and heathland linking Mount Tibrogargan and Mount Tibberoowuccum. Interpretive signs along the track provide details of the area's special features. The Jack Ferris lookout, on Trachyte Ridge, allows for good views of the surrounding peaks. This ridge owes its name to a type of volcanic rock which forms many of the Glass House Mountains peaks.

Getting there

You can enter from the Tibrogargen Picnic Grounds.  The entrance is near corner of Marshs Rd and Barrs Rd, GLASS HOUSE MOUNTAINS QLD.

Nice walk. A different view of Tibro can be had from Jack Ferris Lookout.

Great walk and lookout. Good for birdwatchers too.

Did an extended version of this walk around August last year and loved it. Fantastic and not too much hard work, so lots of time to look at the scenery. The track was full of runners, walkers and kids of all ages and I image it is regularly as busy. We didn't attempt the summit walk as we were a bit tired so we'll come back for that another time.

Great walk, Nothing really hard or strenuous. Nice view from the Trachyte Ridge.

Easy walk. We did this one after already doing Mt Gnungun and Tibberoowuccum. We did the offshoot walk to the cliff face just past the Matthew Flinders carpark which surprisingly got a bit steep but was worth the extra 1.2km

A very pleasant walk. Viewing the sunset on Tibrogargan from the Jack Ferris Lookout was a real treat. A good hike to bring the kids along
