Walking, horse riding and bike riding
Three shared trails are provided in Dularcha National Park for shared use by walkers, horse riders and mountain bike riders—the Tunnel track, Tunnel Bypass track and Roses circuit. All other trails marked on the map are for mountain bike riders and walkers only.
For safety a give-way code applies:
- Cyclists and walkers give-way to horses
- When using trails, cyclists must alert others when approaching them.
(Numbers in brackets are map references).
Distance: 3km one-way. Distance to tunnel 900m one-way (from northern entrance) or 2.1km one-way (from southern entrance)
Map reference: (1)
Details: Take this easy walk to the heritage-listed railway tunnel. Slow down as you enter the tunnel to allow your eyes time to adjust to the darkness—especially important for cyclists!
Look closely at the tunnel walls and you may find colourful moths, spiders and in wetter areas small ferns. Listen for large-footed myotis bats that seasonally roost here and avoid disturbing them by walking quietly through the tunnel.
Tunnel bypass track
Distance: 220m one-way
Map reference: (2)
Details: This track passes over the ridge and is designed for visitors with horses that are uncomfortable in the tunnel confines. From this track you can also access the north-eastern section of Roses Circuit—slow down and take care where the tracks meet.
Please take caution on this section of track as it can be steep, uneven and slippery, especially after wet weather.
Distance: 8.8km return (from the northern entrance) or 8km return (from the southern entrance)
Map reference: (3)
Details: This shared trail passes through dry sclerophyll forest and rainforest gullies and includes some views south to the Glass House Mountains.
