This started out as some maps to get from the Kedron Brook Shared Path to Ferny Grove Railway Station dodging as much traffic and hills as possible, but my map embedding fails me tonight. It makes me wonder though, we all must know secret ways near where we live ... maybe there is a place for a group so we can all know the secret ways of Brisbane

Anyway, since my embeds failed, here's a picture (the green dashed line is the best way I reckon)

Finally did this today.  What a lovely ride!  I ended up just going up and down Ferny Way.

Gavin, Let me know if this works:

Wooloowin to Samford Village return

I'm off to Bunnings now, but will have another go if you can't access the map.

Stephen, did you map your route?  i want to do this tomorrow.

Comment by StephenW on April 26, 2014 at 2:29pm

Survived.  In fact I greatly enjoyed the expedition this morning.  A few observations:

  • You CAN get coffee in Samford village ... and French toast too
  • I took the 'wrong' way from Teralba Park to Ferny Grove (went further south than your recommended route, via Silverton etc.)
  • Whichever way you're going on the rail trail, the opposite side of the track looks a bit more solid, like you'll get better traction
  • It's about a 60km round trip from the Kalinga Park area, although I did have to retrace my steps a couple of times
  • There are some great bike rides to be done in Brisbane, and this is one of them.

So it will be a bit more civilised than this trip upstream:

Do they make coffee in Samford?

Yes, in fact I think you are in for a surprise when you get there. The last time I was there I stopped with Peter M. at The Flying Nun for coffee. Interesting atmosphere and good service. $15 for coffee and cake though. There are many others too - cafés may be the biggest industry there ;)

There is a mobile phone app called Beanhunter that can be used for finding coffee when you are far from home. I would love to join you but I am expecting visitors at home tomorrow.

Thinking of exploring up to Samford Village tomorrow (Saturday) morning fairly early.  Do they make coffee in Samford? :)

Your right about the tunnel.  Went through there today. I would rather go the long  way around as I am sure to fall down one day.

Just be careful when using that crossing.  As Doc said, there are stairs but, particularly when you have gone from bright sun to the dark tunnel, they are not obvious until you are almost on them.
