110km of world class, family friendly trails
Hidden Vale Adventure Park in the Lockyer Valley is a paradise for those who love to get out onto the trails and explore. The property includes over 110km of world-class trails that can be used by mountain bikers, trail runners, or hikers.

Hidden Vale is about an hour's drive west of Brisbane. This means it is also easily accessed by those living in Ipswich and Toowoomba. Visitors are welcome to bring their own mountain bikes, although hire of mountain bikes and eMountain bikes are available near to the entrance. Although competitive events are held on these trails, there is plenty for the whole family. This includes a training park area where kids and their parents can learn and test out new skills, and many kilometres of well-maintained trails running through shaded bushland.

Maps of the trails are available here. There are also occasional, unexpected items of interest. Kids are often delighted by this crashed plane sitting at the junction between two of the trails.

Hidden Vale recommend you check the weather and trail conditions here before you leave home to avoid disappointment. Detailed reports on each trail include things such as "Trail has been brush cut. Some sections still require raking with excess grass and loose rocks to be removed. Trail work in progress."
