Cooktown Cycle Trail

Cycling past the Pilots Jetty
Cycling past the Pilots Jetty

Ride past heritage buildings, visit our pioneering ancestors in the cemetery, go bird watching, stop for a dip in the public swimming pool or park the bikes and combine a BIKE and HIKE day activity on sections of the Scenic Rim walking trail.

Energetic riders can try a hill climb to reach the summit of Grassy Hill – the amazing 360 degree views are worth the sweat.

There are 3 interlinked cycle trails around Cooktown all of which have options for a BIKE and HIKE activity.

So why not combine your bike ride with a stroll through the cemetery or the Botanic Gardens, enjoy scenic coastal and beach walks or an take energetic hike up Mount Cook.

Pick up a Biking Trails brochure from the Cooktown Visitor Information Centre at Nature's Powerhouse at the Botanic Gardens.
