Known in the past for it's rough, rocky and hand-cut trails, the face of Hidden Vale Adventure Park is changing. Many riders will be familiar with the area, as the trails spread out from the back of the Spicers resort and restaurant, into the hot and dry trails of South East Queensland's beautiful Scenic Rim.

Hidden Vale hosts numerous events each year, from 24hr races, trail running events, a fun 6+^ event in winter - and of course the Flight Centre Epic, a round of the National XCM Series, in September.

But now, with 80km (and more to be built) of World Trail machine and hand-built trials being added to the facility, Hidden Vales allure is set to spread beyond riders in South-East Queensland. It's likely that riders around the country are going to want to visit - to check off other growing mountain bike meccas like Blue Derby, Atherton, Falls Creek and more.

The Yeti Factory team have visited and love it. Local riders love it - when will you make the trip?

We have a big feature coming up in Issue 160 of AMB, and that's on sale tomorrow. Don't miss it.
