Getting there

Google Maps - Wyaralong Dam Recreational Facility, which is of Wyaralong Dam Access Rd just off Beaudesert-Boonah Rd

Route/Trail notes

Starting at the carpark work your way down to the track that runs along the banks of the dam. From there you follow a very well marked/touristy track for quite a while. There are 2 tracks that lead to the summit, both are well marked but less touristy than the Dam perimeter track. From there it is a short but steep trek to the summit which has a great uninterupted view to the south. There are maps along the way to help you orientate yourself.

Permits/Costs

Free, but check the SEQ website before you go, it is prone to being closed for upgrades.

Comments

Decided to bring our push bikes to save time getting to the base of the mountain. I would say we saved time but it certainly didn't save effort. The track has a lot of sand on it which led to some pretty sketchy moments riding downhill. The walk from the base to the top was really nice, wasn't overly difficult but enough to get your heart pumping. Was a bit of a miserable day but the view is still fantastic! Make sure to check on the SEQ water website before you go, first time we tried it was closed and the track was fenced off.
