This is a well-maintained walking path in the Buderim region of the Sunshine Coast.
The general standard of this trail is good, but care must be taken during wet weather due to slippery pathways.
Access to this trail is on the corner of Mons and Telco Road, Buderim (2 km from Buderim Town Centre), with parking on the left hand side of Telco Road. The path down to the trail is on the right hand side of Telco road and is well sign posted.
The site of the original Telco Station is about 100m towards Buderim from the parking area. From the entrance it is all downhill to the Mons Station site (1100m from the start) and the trail continues on to Liana Place (2km) which is the current end of this trail.
Personal mobility vehicles would be able to access the first 800m. The entrance has a sealed zig zag path,while the rest is compacted earth.
There are no water bubblers or toilet facilities on this trail.
