Mount Coochin Peaks Circuit
Starting from Old Gympie Road, Beerwah, this circuit walk/scramble takes you both to the western and eastern peaks of Mt Coochin, a scenic mountain rising 235 metres(western peak) above sea level. After you hop on the final rock, expect to be welcomed by panoramic views all over the surrounding Glass House Mountains along with others. Mellum to the north, Coonorwin(Crookneck) and Beerwah to the southwest, and Ngungun to the south. This track can be a great start for people who want to get used to scrambling. Although keep in mind that the descent from the eastern peak is known to be hard to navigate and more slippery than the other sections, so feel free to descend from the western peak instead. Insect repellent may come in handy against the mozzies(mosquitoes) and horse-flies. Start early on a sunny day as the track is fairly exposed. Do not schedule the trip after rainfall as the track becomes slippery and extra dangerous. 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.
