Description

The Glasshouse Mountains are synonymous with the Sunshine Coast hinterland and so significant they are Queensland and National Heritage Register as a landscape of national significance. They were a meeting place for our Indigenous people where they gathered for ceremonies and trading. The mountains are of spiritual significance to the Aboriginal people and are truly a magnificent place to run or hike.

On this route going through the Glass House Mountains National Park, you circumnavigate some of these mountains, passing by the base of Mount Beerburrum and Mt.Tibrogargan, with views of Mount Ngungun, Beerwah, Tibberoowuccum, Coonowrin and across to Wild Horse Mountain.  The route also takes in some of the Yul-yan-man track.

Easy to follow course on logging roads, fire trails and some single track with undulating hills and lots of flat running. The whole route is easily accessible and has phone reception on most of the course.

Lots of abundant bird life in the area and black cockatoos.  

Essential for this route is drink and food, plus first aid essentials.
