With spectacular views of the Glass House Mountains this trail begs you to take your time and enjoy this walk and every moment of the changing landscape.

SUITABILITY
For experienced walkers only.

HIGHLIGHTS
Yul-yan-man mean "walk slowly" in the Kabi Kabi language and this track is well suited to its name. It is also not for the faint hearted as there are some sections that are quite technical and challenging. Make sure you carry water with you.

From the Beerburrum State School car park follow the cemetery sign and after 20 metres you’ll come to a sign that has a Soldiers Settlers pointing to your right (this is your return trail) and a walking post marker with an arrow going straight ahead. Go straight ahead. This first section will lead you up to the car park for the Mt Beeburrum summit walk. Take the wooden bridge behind the information sign and then almost straight away this trail turns into a Grade 5 Track. It trends up hill for quite a long way. Follow the rocky, rough and – in places – faint route(follow the pink directional markers). The high point in the trail is relatively close to the summit of Mt Beerburrum. It then mostly descends a long ridgeline. Near the end of the descent is a gully leading to a rocky outcrop, a rock climbing area known as Dwarfland.

The trail goes down into the gully, around to the left of the south side of the rocky outcrop then up on to the top of it where there is a cairn indicating the turn-off to the rock climbing area. Carry on straight over the hill where you will join a nicely formed trail that makes its way to the Trachyte Circuit (about 300m away). When you meet the Trachyte turn right and after about 600 metres you hit an intersection with a fire trail where there is a large green sign to the right that says Beerburrum trailhead 3.8km atop of Soldiers Settlers trail signage. Head in this direction.

About 500 metres later turn off the fire trail onto a marked track for walkers and cyclists. When you eventually hit a T-Junction with another fire trail turn right. Shortly after you’ll go past the old Beerburrum Cemetery before getting back to your starting point.

AFTERWARDS
You will have definitely earned yourself a pit stop recovery after this hike, head to the local cafe & coffee shop in town.

There are public toilets in Beerburrum at Parrot Park if you need one before or after the walk.

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: Heading South on Steve Irwin Way turn right into Beerburrum Road (Beerburrum township). You'll shortly pass Parrot Park and the Beerburrum School. Turn right here where you see the blue cemetery sign and park in the school car park. The walk starts at the back of the school car park.

To the end point: The end is the same as your starting point.
