This narrow, two-way trail is designed for cross country mountain biking. Walkers must be alert and considerate for mountain bike riders approaching from either direction.

At its eastern end, UTR begins 700 m along the Shelly Cove trail and crosses the northern and western slopes of Many Peak Range. It provides excellent views of the islands to the north and the Coral Sea beyond. There is a link 6.6 km along UTR that leads to Smedley's trail. At its western end, UTR begins 500 m along the Shelly Beach trail in Townsville Town Common Regional Park. UTR has rough surfaces and some steep sections. Trail users can return the way they came or may use the other trails and internal park roads to return to their starting point

Access Info

Head to Cape Pallarenda. Ride up the Shelley Cove trail, past the World War II forts. Single track starts on opposite side to the water.
