Mount Beerburrum Summit Walk

Time to go uphill! The Mount Beerburrum Summit Walk in the Glasshouse Mountains North of Brisbane seems like a good place to start some uphill training for the JLF Trek in May.

The Beerburrum Summit Walk is about 3.3 Km return, a short walk but it is STEEP! The trailhead is now in Beerburrum town next to the state school. It is about 1km walk through woodland to get to the old car park and the start of the summit walk itself. I took an unintentional 1 km detour along the Soldiers Settlement Track to the old Beerburrum cemetery before turning around. The summit walk itself is only 700m but will be among the steepest you will ever encounter on a paved walk. 

The summit track is concrete paved but very steep (30+ degree) most of the way. The walk leads uphill through a small area of rainforest, then winds up through eucalyptus woodland to a fire tower. Great exercise for the calf muscles.

At the summit you can climb to the first level of the fire tower and enjoy a 360 degree view of the Glass House Mountains including the Sunshine Coast to Redcliff. It was a clear day so the Brisbane CBD was also easily visible. Unfortunately the views of the Glasshouse mountains are now largely obscured by trees growing taller.
