About the Trails
We are stoked to be racing at Castle Hill Blackstone Reserve MTB Park, which provides some of the best single track in South East Queensland.
Ipswich City Council and a group of dedicated volunteers from the Ipswich Cycling Club have built the trails and facilities that makes this small but busy trail network one of the most popular in the region.
With over 15 International Mountain Biking Association rated mountain bike trails ranging from easy to very difficult, Castle Hill is suitable for riders of all abilities, but is best known for its technical single trails which can challenge even experienced riders.
Address: Corner of Thomas and Mary Streets, Blackstone.
