Eagle junction to city

Don't catch the train!! Run instead! 15k? There is a relatively traffic free route - follow roads that run west of train line along train line to Albion Station. Go under the overpass. Follow Mcdonald, Albany, Genton streets. Follow cycle track in parkland under two rail lines. Follow cycle route signs. Cross Gympie/Lutwych Rd at lights (most traffic you will see). Run along Enogerra creek on track then over foot bridge. Run to hospital (a bit hilly), then follow track along golf course (watch out for falling golf balls!), over large pedestrian bridge over ICB and raillines, then to city via Roma Street parkland.


Kedron Brook Cycleway - upstream from Toombul

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=104230

A continuation of the downstream Kedron Brook run (see below), joins at Toombul shopping centre. The Kedron Brook has a cycleway that extends even further inland. From Toombul Shooping centre, go to the southernmost carpark - it is under the airtrain line. In the carpark - head west - will get you on the cycleway. The path is narrow in some parts. Goes through Kedron, Lutwyche, to Stafford Shopping centre (~5km). This then continues, via quiet Royal Parade, to a continuation that runs all the way past Brookside at Michelton finishing at Teralba Park on Pullen Road. Distance to Toombul ~ 11 km.


Kedron Brook Cycleway - downstream from Toombul to Nudgee Golf Course/Boondal

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=104235

The path follows Kedron brook from Toombul Shopping centre toward the airport through wetlands. Finish along Nudgee beach road.


Boondal Wetlands

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=104242

Cycle path from Nudgee Beach road (see google map link) to Boondal wetlands centre. Not sure of the real route from the 2nd km onwards, but can asure you it is well marked and does finish at the wetlands centre carpark. Mostly bitumen cycle path with wooden boardwalks over the wet bits. Very pretty with lots of nature and birdlife.
