Yul-yan-man Track

A slight scramble with fantastic views of the Glass House Mountains
(1) 10KM  ALLOW 4-5HOURS
Located in Glass House Mountain National Park in the Sunshine Coast region. Approx 1hr from Brisbane to Beerburrum Tailhead. This is a extreme/experienced (grade 5) hike. 10km, Allow 4-5hours return.  

This track is extremely rewarding with great views of the Glass House Mountains. Yul-yan-man literally means ‘to walk slowly’. There is some boulder jumping where you need to technically place your feet and hands to get around but overall anyone can do this if you walk slowly and take your time as the meaning of the track suggests . There are a couple of peaks with great views of Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah. Parks map here.

What do you need:

Always water and snacks. Comfortable footwear (with extra grip) and clothing. Hydration pack or drink bottle, take at least 3L per person.

Getting there:

1hr north of Brisbane located in the township of Beerburrum. Take the Bruce highway north bound, turn off at Steve Irwin way and follow the brown tourist signs to ‘Beerburrum Trailhead’.

Hot tip:

Avoid this trail when wet if you aren’t comfortable with slippery scrambling.  Also have shoes which has good grip, there is a lot of rocky areas where you’ll need to gain traction.

  1. Not so scary Grade 5 Trail & amazing views

    Initially I was apprehensive about doing this trail after reading the gradings online and seeing pictures of steep descent. But after completing the trail, realised it wasn’t as scary as it sounded. Thanks to Sally for reassuring us and guiding us along the trail. I had a fantastic day on her group hike and the trail was amazing with so much diversity in both vegetation and trail variation. And the views over Glasshouse Mountains well worth the effort!
