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

Proposed, none of it is open now. Rather remote; 156km long with no facilities at all from Blackall to Emmet (105km)
Mostly just a plan and few parts are open or ready to ride. Partly in Gladstone Region and partly in North Burnett Region.
13km; not yet established and not rideable
2.3km of trails, which may or may not be legal. This appears to be a rare patch of remnant Hoop Pine forest.
35km of fire roads and 3km of singletrack which may or may not be legal.
Woondum State Forest is 8km SE of Gympie.
No part of this is officially open and some is leased for farming
Deer Reserve State Forest SW of Kilcoy is a mixture of plantation forest and bushland
Murrenbong Scout Camp is private land only available for riding during scheduled events.
A proposed rail trail which is not yet established or open or rideable
A proposed rail trail which has been funded by TRC but is not yet established or open or rideable
While the signage at Pooh Corner clearly states that cycles are permitted, we suspect that this is an error.
This is something remarkable - a newly developed recreation trail in Brisbane which is gravel and yet designated for cycling.
Sadly when this already rideable trail is "improved" as planned it will be concreted at great expense, who knows why
Private land with downhill tracks available on a restricted basis
Right in my backyard, this is a great ride, very flat as you might imagine
Here are the proposed sections not to be found in the Sixth Edition:
40km of forest roads
