Glenrock State Conservation Area provides excellent opportunities for mountain bike riding. With 14km of purpose-built bike trails and 20km of linked management trails in the northern section of the park, allow a day to explore the area. The mountain bike tracks will take you on a windy ride through open forest and woodlands and, in combination with the trail network, provide access to Burwood Beach, Leichhardt’s lookout and the waterfalls.
The trails are graded – green circle for beginners, blue square for intermediate and black diamond for advanced, so there is bound to be one that suits your level. Biking trails are all signed, so if you can’t see a sign it means that riding is not permitted.
Large bike maps are installed at major entrances, but if you'd like to print off and take your own, or find out further information on how to volunteer, checkout the Glenrock Trail Alliance website.
