Figbird Trail (Eumundi Conservation Park)
20 Jan, 2018
Easy
4.3km return
1 hr
We've done this walk several times as it's so accessible and lovely. It's an easy walk and very quiet, also well shaded as you're mostly walking amongst the trees. We have seen a few snakes on the track, so keep an eye out.
Mt Allan from Charlie Moreland Camp Ground (Conondale National Park)
13 Jan, 2018
Hard
8.8km return

This was a decent hike/walk in a nice area, but I wouldn't necessarily do it again. We got to the top in an hour (4.4km), but that was at a pretty tough pace. It's a fairly steep dirt track to the top which gets your legs working on the way up, but is hard on the knees and ankles coming down. Nice view at the top and the fire tower was pretty cool. The cicadas were insanely loud (it was a hot day) and there were lots of flies, even in the Charlie Moreland campground. We saw some beautiful crimson rosellas but not much other wildlife.
Sandy Creek Circuit (Tamborine National Park)

Mount Beerwah Summit (Glass House Mountains)
30 Jul, 2017
Very Hard

The view from the top is spectacular! Definitely a must-do in my books if you are relatively fit and game for a steep scramble. It's really just the first 1/3 of the hike that's so challenging, and for this I recommend flexible shoes with good treads that don't slip. Coming down is tough as well as you are pretty much sliding down the rock on your bum. Definitely get an early start to avoid crowds of people and having to wait for them to climb up the base scramble, also to avoid heat!

Did the whole thing in 30 minutes! Could have done it faster without all the hectic holiday/weekend traffic :)
