High Point

13km loop around Cooloolabin Dam. Good for night rides. Combines fire trails, single track and quiet dirt roads. Has some medium climbs with pinches and you can pick up a lot of speed in areas (watch out for the water bars).

You can add the dirt road climb up to Point Glorious lookout.

Can park you car at the dam carpark or on some places along the dam wall. There are toilets at the dam wall carpark. Gates to the carpark are shut during the night.
