circuit

↑ 275 m
↓ -275 m

Moderate track
Starting from South McLean Road, Camp Mountain, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Camp Mountain via the Sutton Court Track, then loops back to the start via the Dam Track and Link Road Track. There might be a possible creek crossing along Link Road depending on the recent rainfall. Expect stunning views of Brisbane City and Moreton Bay from the lookout. There is a BBQ area with toilets nearby where you can rest and have a quality picnic. The tracks are wide and peacefully quiet most of the time, featuring a refreshing breeze that cools you off. Keep an eye out for bee hives as you make your way through the eucalypt forest. 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.
