Summit Trail

"I do this one a few times a week but usually do not put it up. So over the years have done this one thousands of times. Today parked at the lookout as per usually, then down the Lookout Trail, then across the Golden Orb Trail turning right on the unnamed trail that goes back to the Lookout Trail and straight back." - donizen, Aug 27, 2017
"The Mt Coot-tha official "Summit Track" only takes you to the lookout, which is some 50 odd metres lower than the highest point on the mountain. The true summit is fenced off as a QUU facility, immediately west of the Channel 10 studios. You can walk up to the fence from Sir Samuel Griffith Drive though, which is only a metre or two below the summit. I decided to take a more interesting loop using parts of the Simpson Falls Track, Eugenia Circuit, Brush Box Track, Grey Gums Track, Fairy Wren Circuit and Powerful Owl Trail." - Michael, Apr 25, 2017
"Due to Cyclone Debbie and most national parks being closed, we decided to spend the morning on this one. Started at the lookout and went down the Lookout Trail, then across the Golden Orb Trail, back up the Chapel Hill Trail to the lookout. Breakfast at Kuta Cafe, then off to Simpsons Falls. Started at 7 am and were finished by 10 am." - donizen, Apr 2, 2017
"Meetup group went up from Slaughter Falls Picnic Area to summit, breakfast, then back down Mahogany Trail but cutting across East Ithaca Creek to the Summit Trail again. Most other national parks were closed due to Cyclone Debbie." - donizen, Apr 1, 2017
"Caught the bus up to the mountain, but en route fog started coming. By the time the bus terminated at the last stop the fog was very dense. The driver laughed when he realised I caught the bus specifically to go to the top of the mountain! Due to the limited bus schedule I decided it was better for me to return by the same bus." - jamespole, Feb 22, 2012
