The North South Track (Mt Wellington Off Road Descent)

 

One of the best mountain bike specific trails presently on offer in the country, The North South track, on Mt Wellington near Hobart has been built to an extremely high standard, with the workmanship and attention to detail on the trail the only thing likely to distract riders on this awesome descent.

The ride begins with a pickup from Hobart hotels before we drive to the Springs’ part way up Mt Wellington. From here we unload the bikes and begin the ride down the trail. The ride starts straight up with plenty of great flowing single track as we traverse through the wet Eucalypt forest on stage one of the trail, which takes us through to Junction Cabin. This first section is mostly a traverse with a few small undulations. There are plenty of alternative options along the way with Black Diamond rated log rolls, drop offs and jumps. Those wishing to stay in one piece can easily avoid these. From the cabin a faster downhill section begins where the grin on your face will match the quality of the track, absolutely huge!!!! We wind our way down through the open eucalypt forest past well constructed berms, an amazing rock bridge and more single track before we emerge at the Glenorchy Mt Bike Park where there is the option to try out the dual slalom, 4 Cross or Downhill tracks.

We break for some lunch at the Glenorchy Picnic area before continuing back to your hotel on the cycle way.

This trail is suitable for all levels of riders, however, previous experience will enhance your enjoyment of the ride. Please discuss with booking staff your expectations and experience and we will ensure we tailor the trip to suit you. This is one ride all our guides consider a favourite and we have had a number of interesting groups including the North Melbourne Football Club who had a fantastic time, quickly adapting to the new skills required for MTB. You are welcome to bring your own bike as long as it is of suitable quality.
