A narrow, two-way trail is designed for cross country mountain biking. Trail traverses a lot inhabited by the Smidley's family up until about the 1980's, without electricity, garbage or town services. After the condition of the dirt road deteriorated, old man Bill would travel only by bicycle, making the 16km journey to Townsville city centre during the week.

Access Info

Via Shelley Beach trail or via western end of Under the Radar singletrack.
