This trail starts from the Mapleton Forest Day Use area and follows the fireroad out to the Oakey Creek Lookout. The motorbike trail runs parallel for some of it which although fun on a mountain bike is for the motorbikes so stay right out of their way.

The climbs can be long and the surfaces are pretty loose so beginners should take it easy and pace themselves. Be sure to take your own water.

The nearby township of Mapleton has a great view, a pub and some good cafes.

Access Info

Carparks are at the Mapleton Day Use area along with BBQs and toilets.
