Summary:
Just an update.

Recommended Route:
The Kameruka street entrance is not an ongoing viable option due to the encroaching housing estate.

Summary:
This is just to update the previous review by Dillon. The pipe at the Stretton Reserve end has had a bridge built over it now which makes life a little easier. This opens up a large loop to ride.

Recommended Route:
As above

Summary:
You can walk over the drain pipe with your bike in front of you, and then climb around the nozzle that sticks up.
But anyway that goes out to the road, and across that road is a trail that goes up to and alongside the Logan Motorway.
Forget all that, and turn left into the bush coming down the hill, before getting to the drain pipe. Explore through there, it goes into the Karawatha Forest, and emerges onto a main fire road system. You will never be more than 1/2 hour from a fire road. Have a look around and watch for the big yellow spider webs that really irritate us.
Email if you need a guide or wanna ride.

Recommended Route:
Try the forest

Summary:
From the bottom of the main fire road just off the quarry, there is a creek and on the other side seems to be some sort of park.. just wondering how I would get there? ( since the only way over the creek was a drain pipe, and I'm not that good yet :P ) And I wonder how far in they are going to take the development and whether they'd block access to the quarry in the future..

Recommended Route:
I rode through two "proper" trails in the quarry.. one at the bottom of the main fire road and one sort of parallel it..
