Named by Cook during his epic voyage along Australia's east coast, the Glass House Mountains are rhyolitic volcanic plugs left by volcanic activity millions of years ago. This area has special significance for the Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal people.
The summit trail is relatively short but steep in places and may be unstable in some sections. 2.4 kilometres return - allow two to three hours. Warning: this track can become very slippery when wet.
The track is up the southern side of the mountain so it is sheltered most of the way.
Take plenty of drinking water and wear a hat and sunscreen.
This trail is rough and uneven and should only be attempted by fit walkers. Be careful after rain and never walk when it is raining, as the track gets quite slippery.
Take care near the summit and always wear insect repellent in summer.
Take your camera to capture the stunning view from the top!
Do this walk early in the morning and enjoy the wildflowers in spring.
