Mount Ninderry is one of the first monoliths you see when you turn off the Bruce Highway at Yandina and approach Coolum.
It’s about 360m high with a car park about halfway up.
I’ve seen it dozens of times on our many trips to Coolum, and eventually decided to check it out.
I cycled there this morning, and hiked to the top for some great views of the the coast and farmland around Coolum.
Some of the hills were a challenge.
After the hike, I discovered the dirt part of Ninderry Road which is a steep horse trail leading down the north-eastern side of the mountain. It was a lot of fun on the mountain bike – although I took it pretty slowly.
Then it was an easy ride along mostly dirt roads back to the main drag and home.
All up about 43km with maybe 520m of ascending (according to http://GPSies.com)
