The trail is a great benefit to the local communities that it passes through, as it is a functional way to get around and a great recreational trail. The completed trail will be invaluable to local residents who are looking for a better way to get to work or get kids to school, as the path will provide connections to local schools, transport and businesses.
The schools include Tullawong State School, Tullawong State High School, St Paul's Lutheran Primary School, Grace Lutheran College, St Peters Catholic Primary School and Wamuran State School. The trail also connects to the Caboolture CBD, Railway Station, and various other employment and transport locations as well.
