Mount Daniel Trail – Sunshine Coast

Mount Daniel Trail – Sunshine Coast

Mount Daniel is a perfect introduction to hiking along the Sunshine Coast. We had fun on our hike to Triangle Lake the previous day, but this walk up Mount Daniel was even more impressive considering the effort to view-payoff.

It’s not a place for a long walk, but it’s good for a little stroll before heading to Horseshoe Bay for fish and chips! When it’s sunny, I have a strong urge to get outside. The problem is, sometimes we have sunny weekends when Marc or I are not…
