Council declines offer to join in trail-riding study

GYMPIE Regional Council has declined an invitation from the State Government to be part of a steering committee and $100,000 feasibility study into the creation of a 180km Great Rides trail network in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing Minister Steve Dickson said in a letter to Mayor Ron Dyne the trail would be for non-motorised bikes only, and that a council representative at an earlier forum on the project had expressed interest in extending the trail into the Mary Valley.

A stakeholder forum was held by the Bushranger Mountain Bike Club Sunshine Coast in August to get a study under way to assess the feasibility of creating a network of trails between the Glasshouse Mountains and the area north of Noosa for hikers, trail runners, horseriders and mountain bike riders.

The proposed trails consist of about 60% existing road easements and trails, 10% existing closed or prohibited areas and 30% new trails.
