Gympie area and back to brissy via forestry
 
Has anyone got any GPS Tracks or routes to come back towards brissy via something like Upper Widgee, Wrattens, manumber, Yabba, jimna, Monsidale or something like that anyway, I was thinking of going up to Gympie via Mee, Woodford, Belthorpe, Kenilworth and wanted to come back the next day via a more western route.

Any suggestions I would appreciate

GPX Tracks would be good
 
Ive google earthed a ruff track

Gympie, Brooyar Forest, Glastonbury, Amamoor Creek (Glastonbury via Amamoor ck to Bella ck is a bit hazy on the map ????), Bella Creek, Lake Borumba, Yabba Falls, Kingaham, Jimna, and maybe Kenilworth for lunch. That looks like about 180k Gympie to Kenilworth to me. Then Belthorpe back to Woodford etc

Anyone got any info on that a poissibility, GPX tracks (I have GPS Tracks from Bella ck back to brissy), localadvise etc

What a great 2 days riding
 
It started with Andy_P's track up to Black Snake, what a great ride, and then we winged it in Widgee via a landowner who just wanted to talk and give us cold lemonade, friendly up that way, all high 300 odd k's of them.

Then we headed home with woopwwop at the lead, man that guy knows a great ride to Kenilworth, I'll be doing that again, and yes Wasca you were right it was high 300 + k's today to get to my place.

Just a thanks to Andy_P, Elponkin, and a big one to Woopwoop Dave.

The story of how I ended up with a smashed mirror might have to stay on the trail, unless Wasca feels like chiming in.
