Explore, explore, explore.
I think I have found all the trails that there are, try for yourself and you'll see you can't get lost.

If you start at the Carpark end, then go left towards the corner of the 6 foot fence and ride next to it until you get to a main fire road junction.
Go left down the fire road to the end, turn right onto a new smaller fire road there with many small water bars.
Follow that around to a T-intersection, head to another fence which goes up the white, stoney hill. Just keep following the fence until it goes left, thats where you go straight into some challenging singletrack.
It eventually loops back into the fire road system.

I start the other end, at Kameruka Street, Calamvale.
But no difference, you still get to ride all the same trails and singletrack.

Sorry about the mistake, to make it easier, from Compton Road, turn into Acacia Road and then turn left into the Acacia Park area and follow the directions above.

Customer Service

This is not a review, rather a notice of a mistake in my first review on this trail area, instead of turning left down the road with the petrol station on the corner, you turn right, this is heading east or from gowan road.

Just like to say that I have just returned from my first ride in Karawatha and it rocks. Lots of LONG fire roads as well as some excellent singletrack. Unfortunately, the forest is now split by the new motorway. Orientation is easy as you can either come out on one of the roads or see the power lines running through the middle of the forest. Will definitely be returning in the near future.

Sounds like you haven't been in the forest proper yet, that sounds like the Calamvale Quarry side. Follow the powerline fire road to its highest part in the South, then take a left into that fire road system. Many. many singletrack.
Email me for 2 guide riders....he lives in Calamvale.

The forest is over the ridge behind the quarry (heading East)

Customer Service

The Kameruka street entrance is not an ongoing viable option due to the encroaching housing estate.
The main entrance for MTB's is the Illaweena Street picnic area, less walkers there and closer to real MTB tracks with less chance of an unexpected meeting on a corner. But always be polite please !
From the two gate entrances either go right along the fence (east) to the flat area or go straight (north) up the fire road from the bridge till it gets flat, ride 150m and turn right.

Similar Products Used: All of them.
