Easy track
Starting from Mylett Street off D’Aguilar Highway, this return walk explores the woodlands of Glass House Mountains CP and Beerburrum West State Forest via the Old Wamuran Rail Track. The undulating track welcomes you with birdsong, and that birdsong is likely to stay with you throughout the journey. The various gum trees along the way are home to koalas, so keep an eye out for them as you make your way through. Dragonflies and butterflies may add some magic to your hike as well. The track provides good shade in the morning, but it gets hotter as the sun’s angle changes. Horse and mountain bike riders are also able to use this trail, so keep an ear out at all times. The track can be customized into a loop walk to avoid backtracking as there is an extensive web of trails in the park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
