MT Biking

The single-track mountain bike trail is a combination of narrow bushland trails and flowing one-metre-wide trails. Whether you’re looking for a technical ride or simply want to release the brakes along the flow trail, you’re bound to find it. At the bottom of the fire trail there is a green loop that can be safely ridden by beginners. From there it is possible to build up through the various levels until you’re an expert. 

Extra Notes:

All riders should have a helmet

All bikes be in good working order

For clubs/individuals that do not have adult supervision we will have groups leaving at 9:15am under the supervision of an adult for the beginner & intermediate track. After completing these you will have an option to attempt the advanced track.
