Toohey Forest to Mt Gravatt (Brisbane City council local walks)
31 Jul, 2020
Medium
5km
2 hrs
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.
Yul-yan-man Track (Glass House Mountains)

Great track. It is incredibly well-marked and worn - so if you don't see a pink marker in a while then backtrack! We ended up getting off track in in the Mt Beerburrum section.. and had an arduous bush bashing journey to find it again. Took 3 hours in the 10km loop return via Soldier's - and that was with a significant delay in getting lost at the start.

Mosquitos in the area are quite fierce. Take repellant and wear long clothes.
Mount Superbus (Main Range National Park)

Comment below describes the walk well.

DO NOT miss the rock arrow on the ground to the left of the path. The path veers to the left up onto the ridge from here. It is possible to get through if you lose the trail, just remember the ridge is to the left. A GPS is advisable, because it is very very easy to lose the trail on the way up.

At the top, the Superbus summit is not far from the junction of the paths. You will head up a steeper section, and immediately at the top there is a clearing on the right (west) side of the path. The metal tin marks the spot. The path then continues onto the bomber (seems to be about 45 mins of walking additional each way).

Quite easy to take the wrong turn. Look for pink ribbons at the intersections. There are often a few people on the trail if you get stuck. Strong climb but along a fire trail and not too lengthy. Hopping along the ridge is fun :)
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

Relatively easy ascent. 3 hours return with half an hour break at the top. Beautiful views. Very brambly and thorny on the way up - lots of reveg and cobblers pegs after summer fires. Saw brown snake on trail.
Warrie Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

Well marked and beautiful trail through lots of waterfalls. Just over 4 hours return with a stop for lunch, walking at a moderate pace. Expect leeches, so ankle covers are recommended.
Mount May (Mt Barney National Park)

Attempted this two months after the January bushfires. It’s currently extremely difficult. The entrance is obscured by multiple fallen trees. The trail is very rarely visible, lots of bush bashing to get up the main part of the mountain. Didn’t get to either peak once we had rock scrambled to about 750m, exhausted and concerned about losing our orientation to the camp ground so turned back. Snakes, fallen trees, etc. Would not recommend until the trail is remarked.
Mt. Coot-tha Summit Track (Mt. Cootha)

Not a very difficult walk. The track has four creek crossings, which require getting your feet wet during wet weather.

View not fantastic. Manageable walk - don't think it's quite the 8ks stated. Otherwise, very nice :)
