At a Glance
Bungarra Alpine Centre is 5km from Jindabyne along the Barry Way.
At Bungarra, there is approximately 20km of professionally made mountain bike trails that cater to all levels, as well as four skills areas. Trails are marked green (easy), blue (intermediate) and black (advanced) to guide riders as they set out on a ride. From easy, flat trails that suit families and beginners, to technical switchbacks and rock gardens, there is ample opportunity to progress from whatever level you may be at.
See the new DVD of Bungarra trails - http://www.bungarra.com.au/mountain_biking.html
Trailhead: At ALI shed (big green shed), about 500m along the dirt road after you enter Bungarra Alpine Centre, Bungarra Lane, Jindabyne.
The 200 acre property sits up on a hill behind Jindabyne in a beautiful bush setting, with frequent encounters with Kangaroos, Wallabies, Emus, Wombats, Echidnas- and you can often see the resident Wedge-Tail Eagles from the top of the Copperhead Flow Trail.
The trails offer lots of smooth, flowing riding with the majority of trails graded green or blue. The obstacle course and pump track are great for development of skills, both for beginners and advanced riders alike.
There are a number of black diamond trails, including the Garden Trail which is a series of switchbacks that head up above the jumps line and offer 2 downhill trails that require some technical proficiency.
There is a new trail being constructed from the Garden Trail up to the top of Round Hill. This is the highest point in the area that is outside of the Kosciuszko National Park- with 360 degree views from the top! The climbing trail has been cleared and is being cut in nicely with a constant flow of traffic climbing to check out the views and improve their fitness- an epic climb with a total of 36 switchbacks.
There are 2 downhill trails that are planned for the near future. The B-line is under construction and the A-line will follow soon after that. These trails will be well-suited to the more advanced riders.
