AFMBP

Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park is a network of purpose-built, single-track mountain bike trails located in the Herberton Range State Forest.  Trails meander through an open forest of gums, bloodwoods, mahoganys, she-oaks, grasstrees and cycads and some of the trails pass former forestry experimental plots of teak, blackbutt and tallowwood trees.

Do you have a mountain bike but dont ride because you dont know where to go, or dont ride because confidence is not quite there.

If you have a bike or can borrow one and would like to see just what everyone else is getting up to then this introductory program is for you
