Mountain biking in Sydney’s North is taken to the next level with these 2 hand-built single tracks in picturesque Garigal National Park. Nestled in the upper reaches of Bantry Bay, the challenging Gahnia and Serrata mountain bike trails are filled with technical sections and multiple line choices.
You can test your skills on the first 50m, and easily return to nearby shared-use trails if you’re not quite ready.
Serrata mountain bike trail starts from Currie Road trail, where you’ll roll over unique sandstone features before descending 1.5km through tall eucalypts. Then get the heart pumping with a steep uphill climb on Cook Street trail to make this a 2.85km loop.
Why not make a day of it and ride over to Gahnia mountain bike trail, which winds 2.25 km through thick forest before connecting with Engravings trail for the ride back to Bantry Bay Road.
