Here is our Work In Progress for future editions of our books. These are draft maps of new areas which in some cases have not yet been groundtruthed by us or vetted by land managers. Please do not rely upon these maps. We welcome feedback and suggestions! Click on the map image for a high quality PDF.

All of our published maps of MTB venues in North and Central Queensland appear in our new guide Where to Mountain Bike in Northern and Central Queensland

Also see our companion publication Brisbane Valley and Kilkivan to Kingaroy Rail Trail Guide

Archerfield Wetlands

This is something remarkable - a newly developed recreation trail in Brisbane which is gravel and yet designated for cycling.

Logan Yarrabilba Rail Trail

Sadly when this already rideable trail is "improved" as planned it will be concreted at great expense, who knows why
