We start in Maddock Park near the dam then we travel through the dam trails, onto the roads through Landsborough then through Dularcha to Mooloolah for coffee. Then we come back again.
You can also return to cars using the bikeway along the Mooloolah Connection Road and make it a big loop.

Lots of options to do some climbing with the side trails or riding back through Landsborough and then along Steve Irwin way and do the Ferny Forest trails.
