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 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
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
While the signage at Pooh Corner clearly states that cycles are permitted, we suspect that this is an error.
Sadly when this already rideable trail is "improved" as planned it will be concreted at great expense, who knows why
Here is the 17km section between the Mount Elliott Road entrance and Mount Joyce. This section has not yet been established; parts go through private land and some trails have yet to be built.
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
