Not easy for older or less agile people. Steep in places with variable steps. View of Sunshine Coast from summit good. No toilet facilities. Could be improved by providing some information during the walk on the location history or details on the views.

The view from the top is 100% worth endearing the many steps that lead up Mt Coolum. A safe and fun activity for all fitness levels.
