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.

Some more techy sections... a couple of rocky roll-offs leading into a hairpin bend.

A good downhill track in Sydney?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hey guys

Just want to know if there are any good downhill tracks in Sydney (not private tracks)?

I've been riding Oxford Falls heaps but I would like to ride something more like the Awaba or Ourimbah tracks.

A track with technical areas but also just flowy and jump sections would be great.

Tracks that would be good enough for state series are the ones im interested in.

Greater Sydney area only

Cheers

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.

Time off over xmas

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I've got some time off over Christmas; I've only ever really ridden manly dam, red hill and Ourimbah. What trails should I try out close to home that is decent? single track or technical preferred.

Suggested downhill explore ride?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

With the racing for my year now finished until the Mont early next year, I am free to get back to some more fun riding.

As promised to some off site, I am keen to drive down to the Wollongong area and check out the technical and downhill trails there. I have a rough idea of places I want to go to, so thank goodness for Google Maps and YouTube. Laughing out loud But of course, I am keen for the help of a tour barbie that may know the best places.

Does anyone want to come along? What is your day preference?

St Helena

At a Glance

St Helena Gallery

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.

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