Starting from Mount Cougal Trailhead Carpark, Dungay, this hike/climb takes you to the summits of Mount Cougal via the Cougar Track, skirting the QLD-NSW border. Expect to be hypnotized by the spectacular views over the Gold Coast and Currumbin valley, along with the rest of the country. The scramble for the top may seem hard, but it’s surely worth the gorgeous landscape. As you hike through the rainforest that’s teeming with wildlife, you may run into some cute koalas chilling on trees. Don’t forget to explore the cave hidden behind the rock formation just before the top to get the full experience. Wear long pants to avoid scratches and ticks. You’ll need grippy shoes to safely climb up and down the mountain. The rocks become slippery and dangerous when wet, so please check the forecast beforehand. 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.
