Title Summary
"Hidden Valley" at Coolah

N.B. The "Hidden Valley" trail is on private property & the current agreement with the landowner is that it will only be used on the "Hidden Valley Classic" race day. Unfortunately, the area is frequently used (without consent) by hunters with high powered rifles, crossbows, pig dogs etc. & at this point in time it is considered too dangerous for general trail ridng. Any unauthorised use by mountain bikers could jeopardise the current arrangement.

Andersons

Think of this as The Oaks big brother. Longer, steeper, rougher, tougher climb at the end, harder to get to. Up to the reader to decide if these things make for a better ride.

Appin

Appin is currently closed!

See: Appin needs your support!

Brilliant and technical XC course built by the kind folk at WMBC - one of the finest around Sydney. Looks to be plenty of firetrail in the area too, but with sniggle this good, why would you waste your time there?

Awaba State Forest

An HMBA maintained area of state forest with XC and DH trails. All Mountain currently being planned.

Back Yamma State Forest

For such an isolated place, word is there's some great single track riding in here.

Bairne Track

An easy firetrail that would make an ideal introduction to MTB for beginners. A quiet ride and great views over Pittwater are your reward.

Bald Hill, Geurie

Geurie Bald Hill Reserve - Great flowy single track adjacent to Geurie village.

Bantry Bay

Some out & back trails that make a nice addition to a lap of Manly Dam. The Cook Street Track in particular is a real lung buster and great climbing training.

Barrington Tops National Park

Massive national park a good 5 hours drive North of Sydney. Large plateau peaking over 1500m altitude (high enough for snow in winter) and dropping away sharply in all directions is criss-crossed with fire trail through beautiful native forest.

Bathurst Bike Park

Bathurst Bike Park, off Colledge Rd

Beechworth MTB Park

Great example of what an MTB Park should be like, for money atleast. Collection of freeride / jump, downhill, technical and easy xc trails.

Berowra Heights

Lovely leafy fire trail on the western side of the plateau. Commonly riden from Ti-Tree Cres north to Berkerly Cl and then sealed roads back to meeting location.

Blackbutt Reserve - Killara

A short aerobic out and back workout in a shady valley.

Blackheath Rocks

At 1,065m Blackheath is the highest village along the great western highway (Bell is the only village with in the BMCC area that is higher). There are several options for rides in the area, this description is for the two out and back firetrail rides named Hanging Rock and Anvil Rock - in the one place here as they are so close and similar.

Bobbin Head

Very easy fire trail along the ridge top with a couple of fast downhill sections if you're up to it, this is perfect for the absolute beginner.

Brisbane Water National Park

A strange mish-mash of single track and fire trail leads to amazing views South over the water and to West Head.

Bruce Ridge

Bruce Ridge Nature Reserve

Bungarra Alpine Centre

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

Byron Bay Farmstay Mountain Bike Park

Sorry, Byron Bay Farmstay Mountain Bike Park is now closed.

This page is for archive purposes only.

Purpose-built singletrack on a stunning property overlooking Byron Bay's hinterland. Mostly for intermediate/advanced mountain bikers but with a new beginner trail. There is now over 6km of track that flows through open paddock, forest gullies & timber plantation. Pump track & skills courses at the trail head too.

Camden River

AKA River Run or 9 Bridges.

Cascades

Cascades is a good test of your cardio fitness - lots of hills and not much technical stuff means easy riding if you have average to good fitness.

Centre Track

Another short-ish track in Ku-ring-gai to link up with others.

Chiltern Track

Not really a ride - but a testy little hill to join up or tag onto others in the area.

Cripple Creek

A network of fire trails that spans from Blaxland to Yellow Rock. Great for a short rides. Best for linking the Lower Blue Mountains to create some epic rides.

Dargle Farm

A private track no longer used for some events. Owner asked WSMTB to stop events in 2010

Del Rio

A private track used for some events.

Duck Hole/Terrey Hills Trail

A nice easy track to join with others in the area for making longer routes.

Dungog Common

Dungog Common is a MTB area next to the township of Dungog that comprises 650 acres and currently about 30 Km of MTB single track mostly blue and some black. I would call it a hard XC track or AM track. Ideal for Gravity Enduro.
We are working on new tracks and extensions all the time and you can expect another 10 Km within the next couple of months.

Elvina Track

Short but very steep.

Faulconbridge Point

A pretty gentle out and back (13.4km return from the gate), a good ride for beginners with a great view at the end.

Galston Recreation Reserve

A network of fire trails leading off from the Galston Aquatic Centre.

Glenrock State Conservation Area

Great area of single trail in the centre of Newcastle. A once illegal area that in late 2009 has been audited and updated by trail building professionals. An example of how things should be done.

Great Northern Road

Rough firetrail along old convict road between Sydney and Newcastle. You'd be mad to drive there now, but parts (not all) are great for cycling.

Hassans Walls

Can be done as a looped ride or shuttles. With about 13 single tracks winding their way off the escaprment the area is reasonably contained. Trails generally follow the ridge lines starting flattish with short sections of steeper more technical sections towards the bottom.

Heathcote National Park

Not much here but a few firetrails.

Now it is no longer possible to ride along the train line from Waterfall to Heathcote to complete a loop of the Royal National Park crossing over and riding North inside Heathcote National Park seems a far better idea.

James Estate Winery

An awesome network of mountain bike trails to suit a wide range of skill levels, all located by the James Estate cellar door. Tracks are open to the public - you now need to sign in and sign out including a personal liability waiver at the cellar door before you ride.

Jesmond Park/John Hunter Hospital Hill

area between Jesmond Park & John Hunter Hospital has many technical singletrail for riding when other areas are wet as since most of it is on the top or sides of the hill they drain well & the soil in most spots dries quick.Area is used by people walking dogs & Moto riders so just be careful-area will one day be used as part of the bypass so at the moment there is no regs. up there!

Kanangra-Boyd National Park

Loads of fantastic fire trail in the wilderness. Nothing too technical and no particularly steep hills from what I know.

Killingworth

Killingworth mtb trails - home of HMBA for many years prior to Awaba MTB Park.

Kincumber Reserve

Small but sweet downhill trail located at Kincumber Reserve, just south of Gosford. Requiring at least an intermediate rider skill, it also has decent surrounding fire trails for those not game for technical riding.

Kinross State Forest

Kinross State Forest is one of NSW mountain bikings best kept secrets. The mountain biking trails include over 20km's of purpose built singletrack through lush pine forest and over varied terrain.

The area offers a large percentage of singletrack suited to riders of all abilities, with a good combination of easy flowing smooth sections teamed with some more technical short and sharp hills, fast descents and some fun surprises thrown in along the way.

Kiwarrak State Forest

Pronounced 'kye-warrick'. Great single track close to Taree.

Knapsack Reserve

A variety of tracks with a mix of firetrail and technical single track. Currently a bit of a maze which allows for creating your own loop.

Also includes a legal DH Track.

Kowen Forest

Close neighbour to Sparrow Hill with lots of fire trail and a decent length of single track to boot.

Lake Canobolas Mountain Bike Park

4km cross country loop with pump track and skills track. All up, over 6km of single track which is well maintained with some new flowing sections.

In a great location opposite the touristy Lake Canobolas.

Lake Parramatta Reserve

A short loop can be had in the reserve here.

Lake Woodford

Lake Woodford's surrounds have recently been opened to riders and walkers, meaning we can now access a bunch more firetrail in the mid mountains. Note: There is no legal access to the dam - no swimming!

Lane Cove National Park

Located to the North of Macquarie Uni, trails range from rocky fire trails along the creek, sealed commuter cycle trails in the South, & roughly concreted steep sections in the NW.

Lidsdale State Forest

***Important update***

All the pine in the area is being logged. This means that traditions venue on the north side of the highway is no longer viable.

South side trails in the hardwood areas are still good and we are working on a new venue over near Rydal.

I'll post updated descriptions as it develops

Sweet loop through dense pine forest. CTMTB Club run XC races here and have done an outstanding job with track work. There's also miles more fire trail South of the highway if sniggle isn't your thing?

Linden Ridge

Your Basic Fire Trail dropping 120m in elevation over 7kms with your pinch climbs here and there.

Majura Pines

Pine forest

Manly Dam

One of Sydney's best rides - From Less experienced to Intermediate and even Advanced, all enjoy this ride.

Marramarra National Park

Wide range of trails from the rather leisurely Collingridge Point out and back to the wild technical descent of Smugglers Track and killer climb from the creek up Marramarra Ridge Trail - this place pretty much has it all.

Medowie MTB Track

Singletrack loop known as Short-But-Sweet out the back of Medowie, 25 mins North of Newcastle, NSW.

Menai (Lucas Heights)

Many trails exist in this area, but these were closed by land managers for a period. As of mid-2014 there is now a dedicated network of around 13km of single track to explore.

Meryla State Forest

On the border of the Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven, this area is a famed for the Meryla Pass ride from Fitzroy falls to Kangaroo Valley.

Mogo State Forest

Miles and miles of the sweetest single track you'll find. When climbing the often brutal hills remember what comes up must come down - and when it comes down on flowing sniggle what's not to love?!

Mooney Mooney Creek

Rougher than in the past but with some great single track. Grinding & technical climbs that make you grin from ear to ear on the descent.

Mount Annan Botanic Garden

Public gardens administered by DECCW with purpose built mountain bike trails opened in the facility.
Full trail is 8.9km in length with 118m total climbing per lap with shorter and less challenging options available to suit most capable riders.

Mount Banks

Easy/fun/short-ish fire trail ride with great views.

Mount Canobolas Area

This is a large area of forest with a lot of fire and management trails that are great to explore. It also has some big hills.

Mount Coramba

Awesome Downhill course from the top of Mt. Coramba, Coffs Harbour.

Mount Hay

You can only get so close but you want to get closer and touch it as the view is amazing. Unfortunately NO BIKES past the end of Mt Hay Rd. If you want to get closer, bring a chain and lock plus some walking shoes.

Overall A decent ride with not to many steep hills. Trail was relatively smooth and the views are amazing.

Mount Tianjara

Miles and miles of firetrail with spectacular views all around. Is this a cross country rider's dream?

Mount York

Three distinct routes from the Mt York peninsular to Hartley Valley below - two single track and a third fire trail make for a few combinations with one thing in common - the 250 vertical metre drop. This is steep, and on occasion, very tricky stuff.

Mowbray Park Farm

Events only. A fast and flowy XC track that has been tested using 26" and 29" bikes, male and female riders, 13-60 year olds, a cyclocross and one crazy guy on a fatbike.

The venue is also a working farm so there should be plenty to do for the rest of the family.

Mugga Hill, Dubbo

A trail system close to Dubbo at Mugga Hill.

Narrow Neck

Might be easy for some, but the steepness and therefore both up and down are a task.

Nepean River

Fire Trail running parallel to the Nepean River from Emu Heights to Yellomundee Regional Park.
Not for Beginners

Newnes Plateau

The gate way to a massive area full of riding opportunities in both Pine and native forests

North Turramurra

Fire trail with some single track options, linking the Murrua Track at North Turramurra with the Grosvenor Track at North Wahroonga.

Nowra/Currambene State Forest

This entry is mainly here for reference to some events that are held in the forest.

Old Bulga Road (Milbrodale)

Nice fire trail with a couple of massive climbs. First climb is a killer! 200m vertical in 2K's. After that the trail is similar to Terry Hills Perimeter and Long.

Old Man's Valley

****FIRST STAGES OF NEW TRAIL NOW OPEN - MORE TO COME ****

Mostly cross country single track, built to IMBA standards, OMV is a combination of hand cut, machine cut, slick rock, rock armoured and timber board walk. Except for the Green Loop, OMV is relatively challenging with tight rocky sections, short pinch climbs, and includes extensive berms and rollers that help the rider maintain momentum and flow.

Stage 1
Green loop = 0.4km
Blue loop = 2.8km
Blue inc Black loops = 3.2km

Please use the new tyre scrubber on Quarry Road to remove mud from tyres - (Plant disease control).

Ourimbah State Forest

Championship downhill course, many Km of single trail and even further firetrail - Ourimbah has it all.

Oxford Falls (Morgan Road)

Also know as Morgan Rd for it's meeting point this area has heaps of trails to join up and make the ride anything you like. Most of these have at least one or two technical sections, many are 80%+ technical!

Penrose State Forest

Penrose used to have quiet a bit of juicy single track. Those that did the first Highland Fling back in 2005 will remember this. Sadly a lot of this has been logged. There are small parts left and perhaps the trail fairies have been busy? Or perhaps you just like riding round forest firer trail as there's lots of that here too.

Pilot Wilderness

There are numerous ridable firetrails South of Thredbo. Some awesome day epics (some one way only) are possible. About as close to pure mountain biking as you can get in Australia.

Pine Creek

Miles of sniggle and fire trail though lush native forest - what more could you ask for?

Pine Island Reserve (Murrumbidgee River)

An area along the Murrumbidgee River. Main attraction is Point Hut to Kambah Pool which is an out and back ride (13.4km one way).

Pomingalarna Park

Home of the Wagga 6hr (12.5km loop). A nice trail network with some bridges and berms and more trails planned. There are loops for all abilities, fire roads and some great bushland.

Quarry Road Track (Berowra Valley)

RESTRICTIONS APPLY - KEEP OUT OF THE RIFLE RANGE - CHECK SIGNS

Bring plenty of water and a few snacks, remember hills are you friends because without climbing them you would not be going downhill.

Be prepared for a hill fest this out and back trail has plenty to offer even if it is only firetrail. Give it a try and see for yourself.

Red Hill

Red Hill is super-tough and super-technical. Climbing Red Hill has reduced strong MTBers to tears.

Riley's Mountain Trail

An out and back ride with lookouts, climbs and one of the funnest downhill run of water bars I have ever ridden.

Royal National Park

There are many, many trails in the Royal National Park, string together a few to make your ride as long short as you like.

Rydal

Rydal is a tiny and unique village, listed as a heritage site, set in magnificent countryside. Rydal remains a quintessential rural village with its invigorating climate and fresh air.

A plethora of old 4x4 and moto trails exist through the bush land here and CTMBC are hoping to make this area their new home,

Ryland

Although these tracks can make a nice out and back sort of ride in their own right, their main purpose in life (well, at least for us) is to join with Terrey Hills and Wildflower Garden, from which points you can make a huge circuit if crazy enough.

Salvation Tracks

Nice out and back firetrail where the only climbs to speak of are short, steep, and some suprisingly technical.

Singleton MTB track

10km of singletrack located in the TSR with good flow, plenty of grip and some absolutely smokin corners to rail. Nothing steep but enough elevation to make the downs fun. Ideal for beginners and experienced alike.

Six Foot Track

The Six Foot Track was originally constructed as a bridal way between Katoomba and Jenolan Caves. It is now possible to ride one section of the track, but not it's entirety. Please respect these rules, only ride where permitted and dismount where required. The most popular route appears to be the 28km (one way) section between Megalong Road and Jenolan Caves road.

Sparrow Hill

Sweetest single track I have ever ridden. All in pine forests on buff trail.

St Helena

A technical single trail that complements the Oaks in the Blue Mountains. This trail is either an out and back, about 8km each way. Or an out leg towards a cliff escarpment with an extremely technical descent that is hike-a-bike only (eg. you have to carry your bike down and out the other side), about 20km in total.

Stromlo Forest Park

This is stub article - you can help by adding a comment with information to be added here.

We have stubs like this for places that have heard are good to ride but don't yet have the experience of to do a proper write up.

Terrey Hills / Duffys Forest

Fire trail. Not technical, but one of the best views at the end of the Long Trail. Some more challenging climbs to be had on the options south of Booralie Road.

The Grove Bike Park

This is an official Manly Council facility containing dirt jump and a pump track.

The Oaks

The main Oaks Firetrail is one of the classic Blue Mountains rides, but there's more in this area than just that.

Thredbo

Thredbo - home of snow sports in winter has the only chairlift serviced downhill run in NSW. There's also some nice XC tracks out of the village too, but most will be heading here for the gravity action.

Towlers Bay

Short-ish (9K?) out and back style ride down some steep firetrail, along the water's edge and back up.

Trailshare Olney Forest

This is a private riding facility in the Watagan Mountains north of Peats Ridge. A range of riding is on offer - from wide dirt roads and jeep tracks to steep downhills and technical singletrack.

Tumut Mountain Bike Park

Tumut Mountain Bike Park, within Tumut State Park and Wereboldera Conservation area.
Extensive network of mountain bike trails

Tyrolean Village

Combination of fire trail, but mostly single track on the foreshore of Lake Jindabyne. Although don't be fooled, you cannot actually reach the lake shore here, but there are great views over the water.

Wallaroo

Loads of fire trails, some challenging climbs, hidden motorbike single track, heaps to explore

Waratah Track

Another out and back to the West of West Head Road. Not quiet as rocky or steep as Salvation Tracks but still some challenging sections and a nice view at the end.

Accessed from Hillsborough Rd, Bayview St or Vermont Pl this offers some fire trail and single track riding. Also accessed via EK avenue via the Great North Walk.

Wildflower Garden

Killer climbs from Ku-ring-gai creek tempered by some nice firetrail and even a small section of single track. Some sealed roads to take joining it up though.

Willans Hill

A large large ridge running through Wagga with a mix of fire trail and single track.

The difficulty varies depending on trails taken.

The are a wide variety of track available so the ride length varies depending on trails taken.

Wingello State Forest

Large (1,200+ ha) State forest with the usual firetrails spread across it, but with more hills than (sort of) neighbouring Penrose State Forest make it a bit more fun. Gets rated as just 2 blown lungs because you can take things real easy in here.

Winmalee

Some nice firetrails and beautify leafy fern lined double track. Add steep hills with tough climbing (and obvious downhill fun that must proceed it).

Wollombi

The trails used for the Wollombi Wild Ride

http://wollombiwildride.net/

Womerah Range

Nice firetrail with views from the Ridge. Killer climb up but fantastic descent down Jack's Track (well - when it's dry).

Wylde MTB Trail

Wylde MTB is a purpose built mountain bike track for recreation and racing. Features a Pump track, Dirt Jumps and a 12km Cross Country Circuit.

Yellomundee Regional Park
