Summary:
The most groomed trails in southern queensland. Mostly very smooth, loads of armouring courtesy of the trail builders. Nice little jumps around, some really techy singletrack, nothing too gnarly. The hills are generally gentle, and you can avoid big climbs and still have a lot of fun!

Recommended Route:
If it has rained at all in the last few days, start from the top carpark (Underwood rd entrance gets muddy!). The main route past the sign board leads you to the centre of the trail heads, the five ways. From here you can rocket down possum box (techy, but has some lovely direction changes), or take the more gentle Tunnel of love which features a nice rock garden with a b-line which is also rocky!

Once you get down Tunnel, there's a long gentle run down koala, which leads you to the grasstrees/stonehenge section. Grasstrees is relaxing and takes in nice views, Stonehenge is compact and wild (but not bike-punishing).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There's a four-cross track at the underwood rd entrance which is great for practicing berms and jumps. :)

Other riding parks around the Mt. Cotton ares are also going official, like the Cornubia/Eastern escarpment and Bayview. There are MASSES of trails if you include them, and the entrances are only a few minutes away from DH!

Reviewed by: Mark , from Daisy Hill

Summary:
Alot of hidden paths are meant to be hidden by the park rangers. Mainly for plant regeneration. Nearly every path in the forest is a great ride and is the best park (in my view) in the area.

Recommended Route:
There are many small hidden trails which are about as wide as the bike itself and are very hard to find, The tracks that consist of many jumps and lots of speed is just need the edge of the Daisy Hill state forest and are on the quary road. Most paths that lead onto the Quary road are great.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chocolate Buddha and the BMX track over teh road from the beginning of it

Reviewed by: benoza , from springwood

Summary:
excellent with all types of trails including some NORTH TRAILS in the private property

Recommended Route:
The bestway is to start at the dennis road entry, then take the track up the hill. When you see the no bike sign turn right and continue up the trail. When you see a fence, jump it and ride up the hill till you come across a track. turn left. From the top of the hill there is heaps downhill runs to the left and right

Other recommended trails in the same area:
other tracks include the private property next to the national park
