Description

In the Glass House Mountains, remnants of the open eucalypt woodland and mountain heath vegetation, which once covered the coastal plains, provide a home for an interesting variety of wildlife including 26 rare and threatened plants.

This walk takes you through open eucalypt forest past the picnic area and up some steps to a lookout. As you continue up a very steep cliff, you walk through a pocket of closed forest with tall turpentine trees believed to be about 200 years old. On the way, you will see columnar trachyte, a volcanic rock.
