Fireroads, with some great singletrack parts, look for an awsome hidden singletrack about halfway along the main bike path as you ride down from the sport fields about 2kms on the left hand side where two fireroads leave the path, take the first fireroad and about 20m on your left is the start. steep drops and ramps a plenty!!

Trail Directions
Head towards the brisbane suburb of albany creek and find the jinker track road. As you drive up the road trails start on both sides. the best place to start is at the end of the jinker track at the sport fields. Park at the top carpark, as you leave the carpark ride to the left and follow the bike path. As you get to the start of the main trails cross the road and enter the singletrack, just follow this and it will take you to most places.

Summary:
Its been a while since anyone posted on this, so thought I'd update it. Bunyaville is now part of the Trails Alliance and they have been working on upgrading the downhill tracks.

Lots of fire trails criss cross the forest, mostly following the ridge lines north to south. Boundary fire trails run east-west along perimeter and usually have steep descents and climbs.

There are 10 single track trails offering fun for beginners to intermediates. There is nothing too gnarly in Bunyaville.

Can be as dry as a bone during the dry and muddy in the wet. Holds water in low spots and gets your bike pretty dirty. The surface is pretty loose, particularly on hills.

If you find yourself climbing a lot, then you have picked a route that doesn't flow well. There are lots of steep climbs in Bunya if you traverse the terrain the wrong way. These will sap your energy.

Recommended Route:
For those seeking a flowing single track route, park at the car park about 500m east of Pine Hills Sports club and ride trails 2 (Jurrasic), then 4 (Creek Track), then up 5 (Kokoda), then 6 (Carnage), then 3 (Nutcracker). That is about a 14km loop with 4 downhill single trails. All are linked by fire trails. Check the Bunyaville map to link it together.

Those trails are also the pick of the single tracks in my opinion.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Start at trail 8 (Dark Side) and continue through to trail 9 (Mini-Van). Good technical single track with both climbs and descents no matter which way they are ridden. Challenging technical climbs with lots of rocks and roots to get you unstuck.

Zig Zag and Wayne's World are fun, but way to short to put in the effort to get there specifically. Good if passing through. Steps (Trail 7) near the dam is pretty meh. Again, don't go to the effort to get there.

The dam has a ghostie kicker if you bring along an old bike worthy of ditching and you're not afraid of eels :D

Summary:
Less groomed than Daisy Hill, very narrow, but lots of variety! The surface can be quite loose and shaley in places, so a more aggressive tyre than used at Daisy Hill would be suitable. It reminds me more of OHV than Daisy, but is tighter. I think if it rains, Bunya would be less affected than Daisy (which can get super muddy at the Underwood Rd end!).

Recommended Route:
From the Jinker Trail carpark, go into Jurassic from the big sign board. Jurassic is a lovely, curvy trail, with nice bermed switchbacks and a pretty solid and smooth surface. You won't pick up much speed as it's practically flat, but there is still plenty to do!

It spits you out onto a firetrail which zooms you back to the start. If you cross the road from there then you can get stuck into the lower lying creek trails (kokoda), which are even tighter (but only grass lined, no nasty close trees), but cover a lot of ground with variety. It loops all the way around and back to the carpark again.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There's a sweet BMX track down near the sports centre, and some more aggressive/loose trails out to the north west. Just follow the fire trails out to mini van and wayne's world.

Summary:
good jumps in sections and sum kewl little technical. so many tracks to explore and they r hidden so keep eyes open.but for serius downhilling go out to clear mt.

Recommended Route:
go to tallerbudgera cres albany creek, and there is a park there. in the park follow a cement path to the end and u will find an entry to the forest.if u go left left at the entrance up a fire road. when u get to the top u overlook a kinda triangle of bush and there is some nice jumps there.and if u head down the fire road on ur right about halfway down there is a kewl jump that u can jump the road and then strait into a berm.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Reviewed by: Frame Breaker ,  Cross Country Rider

Summary:
A great intermediate cross country location. Plenty of rough technicals and exciting downhills. Most of the trails lead onto the fire tracks so finding your way is easy. Give it 5 days until going after rain. Master hard braking before you go!

Recommended Route:
Ride through the residential area of Albany Creek and enter through the back. Try trails such as 2 Minute Noodles, the Dam Run and Nutcracker.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ironbark Gully which conects of the back of Bunya. Fairly similar.
