      Bowen is a great place to unwind for the day, giving you that Island feeling with only a short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. There are some "secret" trails on Bowen, many built by the legendary "Danger Dan".

      These trails are not for beginners and feature lots of skinnies and they are some of the steepest and knarliest trails around.

      There are a bunch of wide gravel recreational trails on the island though.
