July 25, 2019
North Harbour Mountain Bike Track
Bringing a new dimension to mountain bike tracks near Brisbane, North Harbour’s new mountain bike track has been designed to suit beginners and families as well as intermediate level riders. Set along 6km of North Harbour’s beautiful scenic river frontage in the Heritage Park area, the track will be open during daylight hours (on weekends only).
Acting Project Director Bryan Finney said: “The new track provides a great opportunity for families to get out and enjoy the fresh air by our beautiful Caboolture River. There is loads of space for picnics, BBQs and opportunities to get together and enjoy this very special space.
“We’ve had great feedback from everyone who has tried out the course for us, particularly saying that ‘there aren’t any other bike tracks like this near me’”.
The mountain bike trail parking/ set off point has picnic shelters and BBQs and is also located not far from the start of North Harbour parkrun which has toilet facilities and water. Additional drinking fountains and bottle refill points will be installed as landscaping works at the Heritage Park are completed over the coming months.
North Harbour Mountain Bike Track offers a trail loop almost 6km in length, suitable for beginner off-road riders / families. It has a gentle gradient and generally smooth surface with some obstacles such as roots, logs and rocks. This track is suitable for beginner mountain bikers with basic mountain-bike skills and off-road bikes.
For more skilled/intermediate riders the trail also features several (optional) obstacles, as well as a more difficult trail offshoot which has moderate gradients, a variable surface and obstacles.
Opening hours: Daylight hours on weekends only from Saturday August 3rd.
