The trail begins at Maiala picnic area just outside Mt Glorious village. Taking in spectacular views towards Lake Wivenhoe, it passes through stunning rainforest in D’Aguilar National Park and winds along the top of Lake Manchester before reaching Lake Manchester Recreation Area, near the half way point. Lake Manchester is also the starting point on Saturday 21 June for teams undertaking the 55km option.

Heading through ridges and creeks, the trail hugs Mt Nebo Road and then crosses to Bellbird Grove. From here it makes a final pass south across D’Aguilar National Park before joining the walking trails along the beautiful Enoggera Creek. Finally, the trail travels through Mt Coot-tha Forest Park and, following two climbs around Mt Coot-tha, finishes at JC Slaughter Falls.

About D'Aguilar National Park

From the NPRSR website:

D'Aguilar National Park is striking in its diversity of environments and plant communities. Take a journey through open eucalypt woodlands, scribbly gum forests and lush subtropical rainforests. More than 800 plant species are found in these forests, some of which are rare and threatened.

The cool mountain tops and forest flats of D'Aguilar National Park provide a rich and varied habitat for wildlife. The cooler mountain climate is ideal for ferns and mosses. Endangered giant barred frogs inhabit the mountain streams and yellow-bellied gliders are active in the open forest at night. Owls also live here, preying on small animals, including possums and snakes. The park provides excellent bird watching opportunities: bell miners can often be heard throughout the forest.
