A scenic 14km track has reopened after significant modifications were made to it.

The popular Yurol Trail, which links Lake Macdonald to Pomona, has been upgraded with creek crossing improvements, trail realignments, signage, trail repairs, sediment control and stabilisation of bog-prone sections.

Noosa Council’s acting infrastructure services director Shaun Walsh said the changes should ensure users have a safer and more scenic experience.

“Whether you’re a walker, cyclist or equestrian enthusiast, the Noosa Biosphere Trail network offers a fantastic way to stay fit, engage with nature and enjoy the beautiful landscapes and cultural heritage of the region,” he said.

“Council worked closely with Sunshine Civil Solutions, Trailworks, National Parks and the Kabi Kabi community to ensure the Yurol Trail meets the highest standards of safety, accessibility and environmental preservation.

“We’re thrilled to reopen this improved and much-loved trail for the community to enjoy and we appreciate everyone’s patience while the work was under way.”

The trail upgrade features a track realignment and new crossings.

The Yurol Trail, also known as Trail 7, includes lush forest through national park and environmental reserve.

The upgrade is the second project realised under the Noosa Trails Masterplan.

Priority upgrades of Trail 3 (Woondum Trail) and Trail 4 (Wahpunga Trail), including the Twin Hills lookout area, are scheduled to be completed later this year.
