Trail Directions
Enter off Kumbari Ave, just south of Johnston St end. It is the old railway line which used to link Southport and Brisbane. It starts with a rough tarred section. Follow through to pathway which comes out at Edmund Rice Drive (near Aquinas School). Hang left and re-enter dirt track. Quick left for a bit of light up hill work. A few options are presented, take your pick, but keep heading west - you'll come out on Olsen Ave just north of Bunning's Hardware. Re-enter track on west side of Olsen Ave, near Smith St connection. Now just keep following. Lots of options to the side - good MX style quarry at Ernest - jumps, drop offs etc Keep following towards far end of Ashmore Rd. If you look hard you'll find the old Tunnel and you'll need to climb over some rocks but ride on through. From here, just explore and enjoy - lots of old dirt bike tracks climbs, short down hills, some loose, some not. Enjoy

Concerning the single track, it's a relatively new trail built by Luke and Nigel. If you don't get lost it comes to about 5.3km (to where it's built to at the moment). I'm riding it 'on my about to fall apart crappy no susser blue mongoose' and love it. Has some log rides, a couple moderate sized jumps, and an odd thing here and there. Watch out though 'cause it doesn't drain to well in some parts. Go ride it and make sure it doesn't get lost in the grass.
Other than that Cameron pretty much summed up the other attractions in the area well.

Recommended Route:
For a bit more detailed entry on the single track trail:
Enter at the end of Edmund Rice Drive and quickly take a left (west), that's entering the single track not the more eroded track a lil' up. Light hill work, then over some mounds and then back down (10m from first mound and south-east-ish) to continue onto the larger section of the trail. After that it's pretty easy to follow.
