the beauty of this track is you dont need long travel to enjoy some fast track...three parts...the first part from the top is plush & fast as you like...be warey of the descent to the railway lines after the woden bridge..."watch the last step, it is a doozy"..the second part is nice & fast too, with some nice shoots...the last part is technical & a lot of fun too...hope this is accurate & makes sense as i yam a little pissed...

Summary:
No need to walk up the train track any more, there is a footbridge in place now. Even better, don't walk in at all. Head up the Kuranda Range and into Kuranda, follow signs for the Barron Falls but turn right to Wrights lookout just before you get to the car park. From here you ride in Macdonalds track to met the fire trail to Glacier Rock. Macdonalds track is powerline maintenance track made for quad bikes so it's steep and gravelly in places but has some good views.
