Castle Hill Blackstone Reserve

Blackstone, Ipswich Area

From culture-rich mining heritage to adrenalin-fuelled downhill mountain biking, Castle Hill is a unique place and offers an experience unlike anything else in the region.

With over 15 International Mountain Biking Association rated mountain bike trails ranging from easy to very difficult, Castle Hill is suitable for riders of all abilities and is cemented as an iconic riding destination in Ipswich.

Castle Hill caters for all levels of mountain bike riders, but is best known for its technical single trails which can challenge even experienced riders.

Mountain bikers can choose a ride to suit their fitness, ability and time available. Although the distances are not long, the hilly terrain and style of trails means that you have to work for every kilometre of your ride. Riders can choose from trails like the gently rolling Blackleg Gully Circuit up to the more advanced rollercoaster-style trail, the Inca.

For those wanting to discover the Reserves historical significance, take a walk along the Lewis Thomas Historical Trail. Explore the coal mining history of the reserve as you pass open mine tunnels, hand-dug mine shafts and relics of the imposing three storey “Castle” which once towered over Blackstone.
