Mountain Bikes

As yet there are no dedicated mountain bike trails in the State. But don’t be put off as the thousands of kilometres of gravel roads and fire trails on State forest make ideal mountain bike tracks.

Just pick your area and for the best advice contact the local Forestry Tasmania District Office. There is sure to be a keen rider in the office to assist you choose a great ride.

Mountain biking can be seen as a mix between horse riding and 4WDing and often trails may be used by all groups. Be aware that there may be other users on your ride, so keep an eye and an ear out.

In the future there is an intention to produce a booklet, similar to the 4WD Guide “Cruisin’ without Bruisin”. This will give riders information on the best tracks in the State as well as safety, locality guides and minimal impact information.

The Tasmanian Trail is the best known long distance trail used by mountain bike riders and much of this trail is on State forest between Devonport and Dover.

New loops are being added periodically, so get the updates and the book and enjoy.
