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.

Clarinda St

Clarinda St to Galston Rd. Western side of Hornsby Plateau

A fast, in parts technical, mostly downhill fire trail which can be linked to the nearby Quarry Road Track or done on its own for a 10 or so kilometer loop, including some road linkage. Has some steep climbs, though there aren't any nearly as long as in QRT. One advantage to the track is that there are numerous exit points along the way if needed.

Jubes Mountain Bike Park Gallery

Sydney's first of its kind; a MTB facility that's suitable both for the family as well as those out to train/have fun. Recently re-opened, it, along with OMV, has helped to turn the Upper North Shore into a place that has some genuinely good purpose built riding.

Marramarra National Park Gallery

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.

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).

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.
