Forest track with a loose gravel surface typical to SEQ fireroads, as well as a few rocky sections. Starts with a steep climb until you reach a cleared ridgeline where powerlines run up to the top of the ridge. Nice views of the valley and back towards Brookfield from here. Trail continues up until you reach South Boundary Rd.

Forest track from Gold Creek Reservoir car park to South Boundary Road

      Dry and loose, some gravelly/pebble sections with limited grip when I was climbing. All good to ride though

       Despite there being a reservoir there, it has no running water anymore because taps and human beings in Brisbane Forest Parks can't seem to get along. Toilet taps afforded me only mild diarrhoea but hey, in the six hours it takes to hit, you should be up that climb. Attack your mates after the grassy clearing if you have the legs after the rocky pinches. If they attack you, get off your bike and pretend to check something and then tell them they're all dickheads at the top and that you've pulled a hammy anyways. The log at the top is the perfect thing for ruining your designer bib knicks on or simply sitting and stifling your breathing as your backmarker mates arrive. Pretending you've drifted off for a nap while waiting is the ultimate here. Also a great trail to bail out of South Boundary ascent on. Just mess up a few gear changes in the earlier climbs and blame it on that. Take it all the way as you arrive home and purchase an entire drivetrain upgrade quoting the incident's seriousness, the benefits of exercise, and half the price you actually paid for it.
