I am a regular user of Daley mtb trails, me and my friends go up most Sunday's, I feel blessed to have this amazing place on my doorstep, reading some of the negative comments about admission prices and people moaning about some of the trails not been in tiptop condition really surprises me, there's is something for the whole family at Dalby and let's face it a 7 enter fee is nothing for a car full!!! It's more or less free in my eyes, it must cost millions to maintain, and as for people moaning about the trails, you could always volunteer and help build/maintain the trails!
A massive thumbs up from me and my friends that ride every week, never gets boring! Rangers and forestry commission a big pat on the back! And thanks for making Dalby safe and exciting, keep up the good work

Brilliant day out in the forest today!
Conditions were not bad and you could push on in the slightly wet sections.
Only downside was gate 36 was closed due to construction works, a diversion was in place so not much of a drama.

Rode the red route on Saturday 6th December and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were 2 sections of singletrack still closed with road/fireroad climbs in place, even though it said above they were hoping to have the route fully open by October. The decents/singletrack are fun and flowing. I'd recommend full sus as the terrain is quite rocky. I rode this with a single front chain ring and managed all the climbs fine. Also stopped off to play in the bike park which was fun (not overly challenging), and rode the optional black sections. The route does have a few lengthy sections of fireroad but it gave my legs a bit of a breather! Would definitely recommend and will hopefully be back in the future.
