Maryborough Hervey Bay Road to Piggford Lane - connecting the rail trail

Gravel route from Maryborough Hervey Bay Rd to Piggford Ln, Nikenbah, Fraser Coast Regional, Queensland

"This is the connection (missing link) from Nikinbah to Pigford lane on the rail trail. From Nikinbah ride along the fence line beside the highway. Once up to Pigford lane, take care crossing this road as it can be busy and cars are trading at 80-100kph. Once on Pigford lane it is a easy ride to the start of the rail trail at the end of the houses."

Hervey Bay Rail Trail

Pavement route from Esplanade to Maryborough Hervey Bay Rd, Nikenbah, Fraser Coast Regional, Queensland

"Starting at the Urangan pier the rail trail cuts through the centre of town crossing streets and following the old rail track. It is a wide well maintained bitumen path that gradually heads out of town past the hospital and into open fields , ending just past Nikinbah. The trail can be followed a few kms further (would not come up on map) but this requires a short stint on the side of the highway, turning right into Pigford lane for a short distance and then left to follow the rail trail again on gravel tracks across some new trail bridges before stopping at a wide wet area.
