Having grown up on the Sunshine Coast, I had hiked the fire trails in Parklands in all sorts of weather. I thought I would give the singletrack here a go, having only been mountain biking for less than 4 months, and I can safely say that these trails showed me who is the boss. These trails are not for beginners, and while I had a great day out (the forestry and scenery away from the fire roads is amazing) it was also frustrating.
These trails are the blacker shade of blue - and some proper black stuff thrown in too.
very few man-made obstacles out here, but nature is certainly very generous - lots of roots, lots of rocks, lots of roots growing over big rocks, creek crossings, narrow trails and I hope you like climbing!
Gets a bit boggy after rain in some parts.
I think now with a bit more experience I would have an absolute ball on these trails.
Nothing like it
