Nestled in the foothills abutting Mount Archer National Park, First Turkey is the Capricorn region’s premier trail network, both recreational and competitive, and features over 25 kilometres of fun obstacles.
Whether you are a beginner looking for a leisurely day out with the whole family, a cross-country fanatic or a rider more prone to testing your endurance in the Gravity Enduro scene, the 29 diverse and scenic trails offer a challenge for riders of all abilities and fitness levels.
From the high speed decents and technical terrain of the 1.7 kilometre ‘K-9’ (which can bite if you aren’t paying attention!) to the easy 4-5% gradient of ‘Finley’s’, the network of impressive routes will enable you to push your physical boundaries while experiencing nature like never before.
This stunning slice of the Capricorn region is powered by the Rockhampton Mountain Bike Club, who continuously work hard to cater to the growing interest of mountain biking and strive to establish Rockhampton as a major mountain biking destination.
Mount Morgan is the home to the region’s newest MTB trails with 25 kilometres of exciting challenges weaving around the No.7 Dam.
Closer towards the Capricorn Coast, Seeonee Park at Limestone Creek is the region’s second trail network and is a popular training ground for XC riders working on their endurance.
