Ride Database Entry: 
Terrey Hills

'Classic' Terrey Hills ride from shops to end of Long Trail and return.

Distance: 
22.22Km
Vertical Climb: 
385m
Vertical Drop: 
-389m

Park at the usual meeting point and ride past the RFS station bearing right.

You'll cross by the side of a playing field and onto Cowrang Ave. Turn left and roll down here, bearing right down Nerang Ave to the trail head.

This is the start of the dirt. Enter the track which takes a 90 degree turn left almost immediately.

Follow this along for 6.22km. There are a few side trails on the way, but ignore them. The turn for Long trail is signposted and a right turn tee junction. Take that and ride to the end of the trail where there is a nice view to enjoy:

End of Long Track

There are a couple little 'pinches' on the way out along the Long Track that beginners may find hard to ride. The last of these in particular can be very loose. Don't be ashamed to walk here.

Given the loose nature of a couple of these sections take care on the return leg. Again - there is no shame in getting off and walking where you don't feel confident to tackle the terrain, even on a firetrail.

Long Track Climb

N1GEL's picture

Took my wife for her first MTB ride here on the weekend. Perimeter Track was quite slippery with plenty of mud, but fairly easy going for me. The missus found Perimeter challenging, but she hadn't been on a bike for years. By the time we got to Long Trails, she'd found her groove and was enjoying the ride. There's one particularly steep and very loose climb about 1klm from the end of Long Trail, which we both had to walk up, but I'm only a beginner too. The view at the end was amazing and well worth the effort. There was plenty of mud and some tricky sections for beginners, but overall my missus enjoyed this ride and will be back again for sure. Hot chips from the local takeaway was welcomed afterwards Smiling 3 stars from me.
