Hike Summary

This trail has lighting and 24 hr camera surveillance and a 3.5m wide concreted surface.

A high standard rail trail in the major population centre of Ipswich
Great history connections with the first rail line in Queensland, a coke mine, the Rail Workshop Museum and the Smith Street bike route to Ipswich.

This beat the rail line from Ipswich to Brisbane in 1875.  Ipswich was a prime candidate for becoming the capital of Queensland,but lost out to Brisbane in 1859. This is why the direction of the first rail  is this way.

It was built in 2008 and opened in 2009 with  a proposed extension in the future further along the line which hugs the Bremer river toward the centre of Ipswich.
