The Whipbird Way forms a natural link with the Cubberla Creek Trail. Take care when crossing the Kokoda multi-use trail as this is very popular with hikers training to trek the real Kokoda Track. The start of the trail adjoining the Kokoda Trail was rebuilt in 2005 in conjunction with the International Mountain Bike Association. The sustainable trail building techniques pioneered by this group have been used throughout the park to reduce the impact of recreation in the forest.
