Wild Horse Mountain is the smallest of the Glass House Mountains on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. The peak rises to 123 m.[1] It is located east of the Bruce Highway unlike all other peaks within the Glass House Mountains and thus provides great views of the other mountains.

It is arguably the most accessible mountain in the local range with a narrow asphalt and concrete road which runs directly to the top. It is locked with a gate and a larger car park is provided near the base providing a simple walk for most people. A rotunda style building with interpretive centre exists at the summit with views limited only by the weather and curvature.

The area is managed by National Parks and Forestry. [2]

The nearby service station previously ran a regular bus as a tourist attraction for viewing the rest of the Glasshouse mountains.
