Escape to the Valley

Just 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD you can find the Ferny Grove Rail Trail leading out to the “country” town of Samford Valley. The best place to begin your ride is from Ferny Grove either from the end of Lanita Road or parking at the Samford Conservation Park. From here it is just over 9kms to Samford Village.

The mostly flat trail is well maintained and clearly signposted. You can also start your ride from Ferny Grove Train Station and ride along Lanita Road until the main trail begins. Follow the trail until you reach a gate – this is the turn around point for cyclists that aren’t confident sharing the road with cars or attempting a few hills.

If comfortable, continue right onto Mclean Road South and follow until you reach a junction, here you go straight ahead onto Mclean Road North and then onto Peterson Road & then a right onto Camp Mountain Road which will take you into Samford Village.
