Very challenging
Starting from the end of Table Top Drive, Rangeville, this walk/scramble takes you to the summit of Table Top Mountain and back, looping around the large grass plateau along the way. Rising 700 metres above sea level, this mountain has no trees on top, although there’s no known reason for that to happen. This journey is short but demanding, and requires you to do some decent rock scrambling to earn the 360 degree views from the top. Expect great views over Toowoomba to the west, and the hinterland towards Brisbane to the east. Reward yourself with a nice picnic on top, but remember to take your rubbish with you. Keep in mind that there are loose rocks underfoot, so decent hiking boots with ankle support are recommended. Avoid the track under wet conditions. Take plenty of water and wear a hot in warmer months as the track is quite exposed. 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.
