Petes has a long history and its character has changed a bit over the years. It is mostly flowy with some very modest jumps and berms in places, and retains most of this character. Since it became part of the QPWS approved trails the designated trail care body have made some changes, mainly to the lower part after the switchback near the fire road crossing. The formerly very mild jumps on this section have been made more aggressive and one has had a kicker added with a more defined gap. Watch out for it. Without the right line you'll go bush In the main though Petes has kept it's original character with some additions that many will love.

       The recent rain has dampened the dust and Pete's is in great condition.
      The rain has also helped bed in the new Loop 1 and Loop 3. They could do with a touch up on the shoulders and drainage areas but otherwise in good condition.

       Fun track with a bit of everything. One of the best tracks at Nerang IMO.

       Love this track, little damp from the rain last night, but other than that it's good.

       It would be good if Lower Pete’s was turned into a one way , down only track. Coming across someone when you’re flying down that section is really dangerous.

       Don’t worry it has two jumps so most likely someone will complain and the trail will be shut down!!!
