Start at Isabella st meet up walk
Pegs lookout is a westward viewing platform on the side of Toohey Mountain. It offers a great vantage point to view the sunset. The hike is a relatively easy hike on some uneven ground of approximately 7 km in total distance and a small climb of 120metres. After the recent rain the area is coming

Great views of Brisbane CBD, north to Glasshouse Mts, east to Moreton Bay. Todays highlight was the sighting of a Koala crossing the track. Previously on a rainy early morning, a fox was encountered.

Great local walk from Dellwood St, Salisbury. It can be a little confusing in there, but all the trails interlace, and meet again to cross under freeway. Once returned, stop at Sailsbury Hotel for lunch and a coldie!

Takes about an hour from the Toohey forest entrance, up to the lookout and then down to Logan Rd. Nice walk and rewarded with the beautiful city view towards the end. There's a few paths, but just use general compass to head in the direction you need to go and all paths converge in the end.

Good backyard trail. I would rate it easy for average fitness individual . Not scenic (until you reach Mt. Gravatt lookout point) but good for fitness routine.

Easy to get lost in these windy tracks. Keep note of where you parked.

Nice easy walk with th eoption of a paved path if your pushing a pram along. Not much diversity to speak of though

Very easy walk. Used to use it as a daily trek.

It's hard to know exactly how far you go because there are so many different side trails but a really good walk (lots of ups & downs) :)

We last did Toohey Forest Apr5, a group of 10 (I think), & carpark was full up. No Toilets here. on 5 Apr, 2011

A great walk. Loved it!

I discovered this walk online at Brisbane City Council website when I was looking for a local park with BBQ's.

Start from the Toohey Forest and go along Toohey Ridge track until you reach the SE freeway then walk along side the freeway briefly downhill towards a tunnel. Which is part of the Inter Campus Link track.

Continue along this track under the M1 highway and up the hill. You will reach Messines Ridge Road (hope i got the spelling correct) turn right towards Circular Drive round-a-bout go straight ahead (left) and walk along the pathway and or side of the road where safe.

Keep walking past the small cooling towers and follow the track left to Mt Gravatt (mountain).

Keep following the signs to Mt Gravatt Lookout. Amazing views of Brisbane CBD skyline from here. and other areas

This is a great spot for lunch.

Then return same way. Have fun.
