Mt Majura and The Pines

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

There are a lot of different trails here with different difficulty ratings. The downhill track is techincal, with good steeps and turns. The Australian Nationals were held here in '97 & '98. There are a lots of choices of cross country single trails as well. Most of which are single twisting trails in pine forest. The trails are well warn which makes for interesting riding. The trails loop around each other and the terrain varies quite a bit. You can do Downhill, Cross Country what ever tickles your fancey.

Trail Directions
The trails are 5 min by car and 15 min ride from the centre of town. Majura Pines are North East of the city centre. From the suburb of Hackett, starting from Mackenezie St, ride up the fire trail untill you see the water tower. Veering right off the fire trail ( next to the water tower ), at the top of the ridge you have to pick up your bike to get through the Horse grid. Now your in the Majura Pines. You can go 1 of 2 ways. Left up Mt Majura to do the downhill course or straight down to get into the pine forest. Please keep on the warn trails as the local government doesn't like new ones being made. This is a nature reserve so don't be silly as it will ruin the riding for all of us.

Summary:
Pretty good stuff for so close to town, Mr Barnett (a fine rider) has given a good review so I need'nt go into detail, also you could try asking Mr. Dingo where he chooses to push his peddles. Remember: These trails are best appreciated at the highest speed you can attain on your trusty steed.

Recommended Route:
Get as high up the mountain as you can, do a quick 180 and then the choice is yours

there's nothing like whizzing through the pines on a sunny winter's afternoon
