A distinct advantage is that the Stanthorpe region trails (including Passchendaele State Forest and Broadwater State Forest) are on sand base, so when other trails around Queensland which are clay based are still unsuitable to ride after rain, Stanthorpe’s trails are ready to ride pretty much straight after a rain event.
