Jandakot Regional Park is comprised of almost 3000 ha of land from small to large reserves and provides important refuge for native plants and animals as urban sprawl increases pressure on our environment.

This portion of the Park in which horses are allowed to be ridden, is known as Anketell North and consists of over 370 ha of native vegetation.

The boundaries of the Oakford Trails stretches from Rowley Rd in the north, to the Tonkin Highway in the east, through to Thomas Rd and Anketell Rd in the south and De Haer Rd in the west. Your final parking destination will depend on how you get to each of these locations.

The majority of the trails have natural surfaces such as loose sand or clay, with some formalised trails towards the east of the network. For a longer riding experience, the Kevin Murphy underpass links the Oakford Trails to the Darling Downs Trail network and reserve. This adds a further 13km to your trek.

Many of the local roads are quiet and can be used to create additional loops that suit you. Please be very careful when riding along Kargotich Rd as it can be quite busy. Please note that step-overs have been created at the entrances to the Jandakot Regional Park to stop motorbike access. This is located along the limestone portion of Pony Plc approximately 390m to the west of the bitumen from the Nicholson Rd access. 

Apart from the trails themselves, there are no additional facilities in this area. 

Float Parking

No official parking has been created in this area, however there are several areas to park a couple of floats.

1. Country Drive - On the side of the road, near the bridge, up to 4 floats can park safely.

2. Cunningham Drive - Off Kargotich Road, the northern section ends in a cul de sac with room for a couple of floats.

3. Corner Craighill Way and Peters Way - At the end of Craghill Way with room for a couple of floats. If you are accessing the Oakford Trails from the Jandakot Regional Park, there is float parking at the Magenup Equestrian Centre, off De Haer Road

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
