Fuel your adventurous spirit with these epic mountain bike trails en route along THE EDGE.
1. The Munda Biddi Trail, Perth to Albany
One of the world’s longest off-road cycling trails, the Munda Biddi stretches 1000km from Mundaring (in Perth) to Albany. Embrace a section of this world-class, nature-based off-road cycling experience that begins in Kalamunda in the Perth Hills, winding through unspoilt river valleys and magnificent forests with purpose-built campsites and roomy camp huts along the way through the South West before finishing in Albany. Expect to cycle through towering eucalyptus and karri forests, unspoiled bushland and beautiful wildflower heaths when you embark on this cycling journey. There are plenty of access points along the route, so pick your starting line and get riding.
2. The Grizzly Trail, Wellington National Park
The Grizzly Trail forms part of the Mount Lennard mountain bike area, which contains around 40km of mountain biking trails. Challenge yourself with an obstacle course of bermed turns and log rides, set along a narrow track that winds through a 6km loop of jarrah forest and granite outcrops. The other trails here are also quite a thrill, with a very organic feel as they follow the gentle slope of Pile Road.
3. Arklow Trails, Collie
The Arklow Trails are an impressive trail network connecting Collie with Harris Dam via beautiful jarrah forest. Try the popular Rays Trail, which offers a tight twisting, cross-country mountain biking experience not for the faint-hearted. Start the 8km ride with heaps of twists and turns, before encountering berms as you travel downhill. You’ll then be greeted by an uphill climb and several large log rides. For an easier adventure, follow the Arklow Adaptive Trail, a 9.2km loop suitable for people with disabilities.
