Mining Road fire trail joins with the Old Gibber Road fire trail to make a popular day or overnight bike ride within the park. The trail starts at Seal Rocks Road, travelling along the former Mining Road for 10km through coastal forest to a swampy area known as ‘The Moors’. If you're cycling in spring you'll see stunning wildflowers and lots of birds.
The route then joins up with the Old Gibber Road fire trail for another 10km, finishing at Boomeri campground. Other camping options along the way include Shelly beach campground and Johnsons Beach campground.
The former Mining Road was constructed as an access road when the area was being mined for heavy mineral sands like rutile and zircon, before the establishment of Myall Lakes National Park.
