Building a mountain bike trail is no small task. For those who have never witnessed it before, the transformation of a hillside from grass and leaves into a ribbon of flowing singletrack can seem almost magical - leading to the idea of 'trail fairies'. This short film captures the elusive trail fairies of the Logan Community Trail Care Alliance (LCTA) on camera during the construction of a new all-mountain trail at Cornubia Forest in early 2013. With the support of Logan City Council and Brisbane South Mountain Bike Club (BSMC), the construction of the 500m trail took 15 weekends and involved an army of volunteer trail fairies who donated 662 hours of their time to make it happen.
