Forrest MTB Trails

19-07-2015 03:29pm

The trails in Forrest consist of 60+ k's of mtb trails in two main areas within easy ride of town. On the north are the Yaugher Network trails and to the south the Southern Trail Network.

These trails, built by dedicated locals and Glen Jacobs and the World Trail crew to IMBA standards, have the reputation of being some of the best in the country and take a couple of days or more to explore and enjoy. 

Access via: Yaugher Network - Barely 1 k out of town on the main rd is an entrance into the state forest (Boundary Rd). Follow that about 700m to the trail head.
Southern Network - Rivendell Lane at the south edge of town. 
Red Carpet - More trails accessed along the dam from Kaanglang Rd.

Trails build themselves right?

Nope. This video highlights the efforts of the trail fairies that spent 15 weekends and over 660 man hours along with man handling 50 tonnes of rock to build 500m of new trail in the Cornubia Forest.

Cornubia Forest Park

19-07-2015 02:43pm

This is the home of the locally famed Stupidly Happy mtb trail. Recently the forest has been developed under the guidance of the LCC, Logan Community Trail Care Alliance and BSMC. The trail network in there now boasts 12+ k's of trails suited to intermediate and skilled riders.
Being 10 mins ride from the popular Daisy Hill trails, Cornubia Forest has always been a convenient, technical extension to a ride in Daisy Hill by those in the know. This option is now becoming far more used and the extra trails in Cornubia now make it a great riding location in it's own right.

Access via: End of Kimberley Drv, Shailer Park or a few points along Parkview Crescent, Cornubia.
