      Tucked away in the Silvia Valley alongside the main street of Atherton, the Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park is in the Herberton Range State Forest and Mount Baldy Forest Reserve. It features mainly open eucalypt forests and valleys with frequent river crossings and waterfalls and spectacular views of the Tablelands. It has a dry volcanic soil with a lot of loose rock surfaces and pockets of rainforest. Wildlife including kangaroos, birds, cockatoos, bandicoots and snakes can be seen on rides. The trails have been designed around great lookouts where you will find hand-built stone chairs positioned to take advantage of the views
