Mount Coolum (Sunshine Coast)

Mount Coolum is a nice, reasonably quick, but challenging hike for the general public and should be researched by infrequent hikers before attempting. Steps have been formed for ease of access through the entirety of the easterly facing climb with exception only for areas where the rock face provides natural step treads. Whilst there is a rope barrier on iron uprights alongside the path it would be a stretch to call it a handrail or supportive in any meaningful way. Upon reaching the summit you'll be treated to vistas reaching to the ocean's horizon in the East, Northern Moreton island, the Glasshouse mountains, and lovely bird's eye views of the sunshine coast overall. Stick to the track and you'll encounter more than a handfull of folks who make this experience part of their daily routine. Highly recommended.

Lovely walk, if not challenging as far as traction is concerned in a few places. Definitely could do with some more obvious signage for the route itself. But the few short "detours" were pleasant in any case.
