The Russell Park Mountain Bike trails offer a brand new adrenaline experience for all ages. This exciting new experience consists of 20km of mountain bike trails constructed in Russell Park at the Bunya Mountains. The trails are made up of three designated mountain bike ‘loops’ and one shared trail (walking and bikes). A shared trail connecting Fishers Lookout to Bunya Ave provides access to Dandabah. Catering to all riding abilities, the trails link up with several sites in the area including Russell Park Day Area, Bunya Mountains Outlook (Fishers Lookout) and Rifle Bird Park.
- Approximately 18kms of trails in total
- Three designated trails and one shared use trail of varying lengths rating from easy to easy intermediate
- Trails range in length from 1.3km to 6.3km
- Designated interface points to accommodate both the mountain bike trails and the walking trails
- Designed to preserve the natural environment, minimal footprint in the pristine Bunya Mountains locality.

Along with bike amenities you’ll find new toilets, designated parking, significant landscaping and new picnic settings.
