From purpose-built trails in specially created mountain bike parks that cater for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders to the huge variety of forest tracks and fire trails that span from the coast to hinterland, there is a trail for you. With mild winters here, it is the perfect time to gear up and get riding.

The trail network at Sugar Bag Rd near Caloundra offers a set of tight technical loops with lots of features such as bridges, see-saws, log rollovers, ramps and various jumps. Even better, the trails are getting an upgrade including a purpose built dual slalom track and a skills progression area. This is due to open later in 2021.

Explore the stunning landscapes of the Glass House Mountains ride. Circle around the back of Mount Beerwah you can push through to the Lookout and even on to Hennessey hill Downhill trail before circling back around and returning to Peachester for lunch. The scenery speaks for itself.

Ride around Ewen Maddock Dam and head into the outskirts of Landsborough. Make a day of it and head north from there through the old rail tunnel to Mooloolah for a coffee stop. 

In Mapleton National Park try the Oaky Creek Lookout Track and the Kureelpa falls circuit for some incredible views.

The Noosa Trail Network is made ip of eight scenic hinterland trails. There’s an array of local cafes, country-style pubs and antiques, crafts and markets plus chic new craft beer bars to add to your adventure.

If you want some more leisurely family friendly options, the Coastal Pathway is a great choice with a range of different sections that can chain together for a longer ride or the Kawana Forest River trail is a flat and friendly ride for the family.
