Parklands has always been defined by its 'raw and gnarly' bundle of single tracks that pose a hefty learning (and fitness) curve. You'll always remember your first ride here for better or worse. It feels like you're climbing up a M.C Escher style hill back to your car, no down only up. Take it as a challenge and once you overcome it you'll be in good shape to tackle almost anything else out there.
However that said there is now a 1km green access track and a 3km green loop from the Radar Hill Rd car park. There's also a black flow(ish) trail and soon to be a blue flow trail and skills area. So there's now stuff to suit everyone from novice to endurobro.Thank |
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.Thank |
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.
