A HIKER has been flown to hospital after he slipped and injured his foot while hiking the Mt Beerwah summit track this morning.

Firefighters, paramedics and the SES were called to the popular Glass House Mountains track about 11.20am and a remote rescue commenced.

A Queensland Ambulance Service said crews originally planned on reaching the man on foot but instead tasked the rescue helicopter to the scene.

The man was flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with a minor injury.

The hiker suffered a minor injury and was airlifted off the mountain before being flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

A Department of Environment and Science spokeswoman said Mt Beerwah remained open to the public despite a number of national park closures across Queensland.
