Muddy hike - Belli to Point Glorious

A muddy hike heading through long grass then up a very steep hill, clay sticking to our boots and a few backwards slides where the hiking poles were put to good use.

After more long grass, the trail widened into a lovely forest of palms, on a trail littered with fallen branches, lots of bark and leaves, scribbly gums, a few small creeks to cross.

Big puddles had us stepping carefully as we edged around hoping not to slide in the clay and end up in the puddle.

Heading out of the forest we headed up Point Glorious Road toward the lookout. 180 degree panorama views from the lookout over lush green farmland, coast and hinterland, towers at Black Mountain with Mt Cooroora and Mt Bottle and Brush in the distance on one side and a closer view of Mt Eerwah on the other.

A couple of the hills to go down on the way back – appx 16kms a great day out in nature
