Quite steep but concrete all the way. Amazing 360° views of the Glass House Mountains to the west and Bribie Island and the coastal strip to the east. Lots of information on what you are looking at and a great place for a picnic.

Getting there:

A distinctive landmark (fire watch tower) on the eastern side of the Bruce Highway. From the south, take the exit next to the Service Station and turn right to cross over the Bruce Highway before turning right again and following the sign to the car park.

Well signposted from the north.


Wild Horse Mountain

Route/Trail notes:

700mt and quite steep. The quickest we have done this is in 7mins 56sec up and 4mins 23sec down. Concrete the whole way. If you are looking for something else, from the bottom of the car park, turn right and head along the forest trail for a couple of minutes and you can follow a bush track up the side of the mountain. This track only takes you halfway up though.

Did this on the way back from the Sunshine coast. Sun was setting when we reached the summit so beautiful views over the Glasshouse mountains. Quite easy walk

This is a regular training walk for me, and I enjoy taking others up. All concrete path, and steep but an amazing view at the top. Always meet lots of different types of people taking in the walk

A great start to our day! An easy walk with a beautiful sunrise.

Naomi Bradley on 2 Jul, 2019

The easiest of the Glasshouse mountains, yet probably the one with the best views. Get an excellent panorama of the remaining Glasshouse mountains from the little bungalow at the top. Great place to go to watch a sunset, doesn't take very long to walk and it's paved the entire way up.

Very very steep! But only took 10 minutes to walk/jog up. An absolute must for a sunset, we got some incredible pics up here. LOTS of mozzies so take or use spray before you go.

Great walk to break up the car ride between Brisbane & Sunshine Coast

came with the same day as Mt Nungung. Beautiful view and 30mins broadwalk on a proper path, slightly steep. We walked under the rain but not that so bad.

Short steep nice views.

I have done this one more than once, but can’t remember the dates of any of them. Manageable even while piggybacking a seven-year-Old!

Short and steep, only 700 metres to the fire lookout. Close to the highway, well straight off it so easy to do if your driving from the Sunshine Coast towards Brisbane just to stretch your legs. What would be amazing views on a clear day of the Glasshouse Mountains with a plethora of infomation including boards showing you the who’s who of Glasshouse.

Paved almost the whole way. Not as steep as Beerburrum, but still a great calf workout that takes 20-30 mins return for the average person. Brilliant views as mentioned by everybody else. Not a lot else for me to add.

Steep walk up a paved road to the summit. Took about 20 mins return.

Troy on 10 Sep, 2018

Great view from the top, not a bad walk.

Darren on 9 Sep, 2018

not as bad as we thought going up, it is steep but there is plenty to see and quite a few birds around we saw several rainbow bee eaters along the way. The obversation area is great for photos on a clear day you can see for miles, highly recommend it.

Anne on 23 Aug, 2018

Sunset Views are amazing! Short but STEEP walk.

Celine on 15 Aug, 2018

Super easy walk up a concreted path. Fire watch tower at the top with perfect views of the glasshouse mountains - especially at sunset!
